    Default Fire Prevention Programs

    I am looking at starting an outline for my department to use to teach a fire prevention program at the station. I would like to have it divided up by age group. Any ideas were to get the info? Should I decide what should be delivered to each age group or are there guidlines somewhere? What do you use? Thanks

    Yes tailor it to age groups

    we did have a program for each school level to 6th grade, ten went to a clown program for all grade levels to 6th grade.

    K- just tour the truck and show them turnouts

    cannot remember the grade level stuff

    one was kitchen cooking saftey tips use a cover for a pan fire, and make a can extingusiher with baking soda.

    drop stop roll

    you can get free stuf from here, but limited on how much, but you can have another person request it under thier name:::

    This is what we do:

    Preschools and Pre-K: NPFA 5-Lesson LNTB (learn Not to Burn) PreSchool program. We deliver Lesson I (Matches and Lighters) and Lesson V (Firefighters Aren't Monsters). The preschool staff deliver lessons II-IV which are SDR, Cool a Burn and Crawl Low in Smoke. We do this over a 5day period.

    Kindergarten: 3 visits each year. Matches and Lighters, SDR and Firefighter's Aren't Monsters

    1st Grade: 4 visits a year. First 2 are in the classroom and discuss home fire escape. 3rd visit occurs in PE and is a home fire escape obstacle course. last visit evaluates using a series of questions they must answer to see specific areas and tools on the fire truck.

    2nd Grade: 4 visit a year. Same basic cirriculum as Grade 1 but in greater detail, especially in the area of smoke detector installation and maintainence.

    3rd grade: 4 visits a year. Same format as Grade 1/2 but topic switches to fire escape in public buildings, especially hotels and motels.

    4th Grade: 2 visits a year. We discuss the fire triangle, common causes of kitchen fires and how to extinguish sotvetop fires using lids. In the second visit, we talk about candles.

    5th grade: 2 visits a year. Visit 1 is how to call 911 and very basic first (bleeding, burns, shock and beck stabilzation). Visit 2 is basic water rescue and dealing with heat emergencies.

    Feel free to email me at bcallahan@bpfd1.org if you have any questions.

    Thumbs up I found this helpful when starting my program

    I was in a similar situation and found an article titled "Fire Prevention Secrets: Expert Tips and Advice" to be helpful. This is a podcast article, so you can listen and read as well. The article is 18 minutes long and is very informative. FireEMS.com interviews Dayna Hilton. She is a nationally recognized public education specialist and fire service leader. It is a great article and I recommend checking it out.

    Here is the link: http://fireems.com/fire-prevention-and-safety/

    Enjoy and good luck!!

    Or for you to spam the forum? Bye bye loser.
    Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.
