Elementary School Fire Prevention
October is fire prevention month. We provide education on fire prevention to Elementary School children. The Fire Prevention Officer chooses topics each year to educate the children on. The morning session is a question, answer session with all the grades. Firefighters show the children different tools Firefighters use to do their jobs. Also a Firefighter will put on turn out gear with an air pack to show the children what a Fireman looks and sounds like. We follow up with the smoke house trailer for K – 2nd grade. The smoke house trailer uses simulated smoke, with the supervision of the Firefighters kids learn how to exit safely and quickly in a controlled smoke atmosphere. We also have various types of hands on with the Firefighters for 3rd – 5th grade.
Pre Fire Plans
Dana Fire & Rescue does pre fire plans on commercial buildings in our fire district to obtain knowledge and information of special hazards within the building. Dana Fire & Rescue personnel schedule to meet with the owner and/or occupant to do a walk thru of the facility, to become familiar with the building and grounds and for any questions they may have of the facility. These are not fire inspections. Fire inspections are done by the Henderson County Fire Marshal’s Office.
