One of the fundamental missions of the Fire Department Fire Prevention Bureau is to protect the lives and property of the residents of Columbus and Bartholomew County through fire safety education programs. Our strategy to reduce fire deaths and injuries is to focus on prevention by identifying and rectifying unsafe behaviors.
Fire Safety House
Fire safety on wheels! This mobile trailer contains a kitchen, living room and bedroom. A smoke machine creates a fire simulation within which children can practice fire evacuation techniques. The house features smoke alarms and a phone to learn about calling 911. Schools can request the presence of the mobile fire safety house. I hope to make the Safety House part of the BCSC curriculum.
The fire safety education programs target those most vulnerable to fire, young children.
