Class Descriptions by Grade
Firefighters from the local fire station can be scheduled throughout the school year to visit kindergarten classes. The objective of this fifteen-minute "Friendly Firefighter" presentation is to re-enforce the importance of viewing the firefighter as a "friendly community helper" even though their protective gear may make them appear unfriendly. Please note that the firefighters are available for emergency calls at all times and may need to leave during the presentation.
Firefighters from the Public Education Office can be scheduled to give a 30-minute presentation outlining a day in the life of a firefighter, concluding with fire safety information. Students will have the opportunity to ask questions about firefighter duties and how they can help protect their family.
Firefighters from the Public Education Office can schedule a visit from September 15 to November 5, or April 1 to May 31 of each school year. This visit will provide students with a thirty-minute tour of the "Fire Safety House". This mobile classroom features child-sized rooms and safely presented real-life hazards, including non-toxic smoke. Most of the classroom objectives included in the "Fire Safety Support" kit provided to elementary schools will be re-enforced by this visit.
A firefighter from the Public Education Office can be scheduled throughout the school year to give a twenty-five minute classroom presentation of "Hazard House". This portable simulator resembles a large doll house with many visual aids that assist students in identifying hazards in the home. This visit will reinforce fire safety practices that prepare students to live safely in their communities.
