Special Operations
Public Education

The Public Education Unit is responsible for developing and distributing public education programs and information to various target audiences. One successful outreach is the section's participation in the Remembering When™ program developed by the NFPA and the CDC. This program incorporates a fire and fall prevention strategy for older adults to allow them to stay safely in their own homes. This section also produces a few publications on a regular basis. Safety Seconds is a short publication with public education tips for the fire service to enhance their local programs. Safety Educator is a publication that is designed for teachers to provide them with tips and tools to incorporate fire and life safety ideas into their regular school curriculum.
