The Martin County Fire Rescue Fire Safety Program is dedicated to reducing fire and life safety risks at schools, daycares, workplaces, and in the community. Our program activities serve students and adults by engaging and educating about fire prevention, fire and life safety and the role of firefighters in helping keep them safe, as well as providing integrated, quality teaching resources and opportunities to stay safe.
Pre-school (ages 3-5):
Preschool children are especially vulnerable to fire and burn injuries. In addition, children under the age of five are at serious risk in a fire. Request fire and life safety programs for your preschool or daycare to address the safety needs of your children. Program materials are directed towards children ages three to five years.
Presentation teaches important lessons:
- Firefighters are our friends
- Stop! Drop! And Roll!
- Crawl low under smoke
- Toys and Tools
- Get out and Stay Out
K-12 (ages 5-18):
Keeping your neighborhood safe is our top priority. Our elementary school-aged fire safety program provides specific age appropriate safety messages and skills. We offer individual class presentations or stage show presentations involving the whole school.
Presentations focus on:
- Home Fire Safety
- Fire Safety Skills
- Injury Prevention
In the Workplace:
Whether you work in an office, factory, or another type of workplace, fires may occur at anytime. Learn what you can do to increase the chances of you and your co-workers escaping unharmed. What kind of hazards are to be found in your workplace? We will come to your place of business and prepare your employees.
This presentation focuses on managing potential risks, establishing an emergency action plan, practicing fire evacuation drills, and accountability. An excellent adjunct to this lesson is the Fire Extinguisher Training class that we offer.
These facilities are high-risk occupancies because of the vulnerability of their occupants due to physical or mental health impairments, mobility restrictions, the layout of these buildings and high use of oxygen. This presentation focuses on managing potential risks, discussing the facility's emergency action plan and evacuation procedures, and staff and patient accountability.
We also assist the group in identifying the fire and life safety features of the building such as the fire alarm, sprinkler system, fire extinguishers, and fire compartments. An excellent adjunct to this lesson is the Fire Extinguisher Training class that we offer.
