Fire Safety Personnel
Dear First Responders,
Fire and burn injuries to children account for nearly 200 emergency room visits each day. As firefighters, you are local heroes in your community and hold a unique position of influence. I encourage you to take advantage of the opportunity to educate children, parents and caregivers about the importance of working smoke alarms during Fire Prevention Week, Oct. 5-11 and all year long.
In addition to the activity sheets that you can download by clicking the links below, we are hoping to offer 100 free, full-color activity posters to fire and rescue personnel for use in educating youngsters at local schools or at your fire stations. Grant funding for these posters is currently pending. Please complete the order form below to be placed on our contact list and my office will send you an email with updates about availability.
I hope these tools will help you teach life-saving lessons about fire prevention to North Carolina children during Fire Prevention Week and any time you have the opportunity. Please encourage members of your community to participate in the statewide fire drill with their family on Oct. 8.
Thank you for your service and for your selfless efforts in protecting your community.
These posters are offered on a first-come, first-serve basis to the fire and rescue community. If NCDOI/OSFM receives grant funding, 100 posters will be delivered to the contact listed below. If NCDOI/OSFM does not receive funding, we will contact you at the email address listed below.
