Public Education

FirePrevention1Educating our community, young and old, is the key to prevention

Public education aims at teaching safety and fire prevention through a variety of age appropriate programs. Every opportunity is taken to interact with and educate our citizens, both in the field and in the classroom. Public education is a responsibility every member of the department eagerly assumes.

Presenting the Fire Safety Message

Winfield Fire/EMS personnel use their own delivery style and may use props, such as smoke detectors, breathing apparatus, specialized firefighting tools or other props which make the presentation more interesting to the students. The goal of our safety presentations is to pass on the safety information in such a way that most students will recall key points. The enthusiastic involvement of our personnel has made this program a success.
