    If citizens took responsibility for their own saftey, the need for emergency services would be cut to the bone. Sadly, society is made up of morons who have no clue how to take care of themselves. So we keep doing what we do for those who won't do for themselves.

    Its up to the fire service to train these citizens,thats part of our P/R. Like someone mentioned if it was up to them, why would they need us. I think that your fire prevention programs should be suitable enough to educate your community. We have annual door to door fire drills where we have actually installed smoke detectors in all homes in our local That didnt have any. We actually sat down at the table and talk to the families. The fact remains that the average citizen knows little or nothing about safety. And when they see that their fire company is interested in their well being. Donations come rolling in. We also do all the Schools,Churches, and Senior Citizen Complexes in our local.
    If we don't do it nobody else will!!!!

    Sometimes, I think it begins and ends with "911".
    Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.

    You know -- Common sense could prevent many fires.
    Too bad the general public does't have any of that either...

    Yes it is the responsibilty of the fire department to educate the public... but the public doesn't have to be as ignorant as they are.

    You can do all the public fire education in the world...
    and you would still have fires.
