NFPA anuncia 2015 Fuego y Vida Seguridad Educador del ganador del premio Año


Por Lisa Braxton

Annmarie Pickett, public education officer for the Worcester Fire Department in Worcester, Massachusetts, has been chosen the 2015 Fuego y Vida Seguridad Educador del Año.

Lt. Pickett is known for her steadfast commitment to bringing fire and life safety messages to as many people as possible. Under her leadership the public education division in 2014 conducted more than 700 workshops reaching 40,000 residents compared to 10 workshops reaching 161 residents in 2008, just before she joined the division.

Because of her dedication to education and awareness, she has fostered a partnership between two groups at high-risk of fire: older adults and young children. Lt. Pickett formed an intergenerational partnership between the city’s senior center and a nearby elementary school. One of the many highlights from this collaboration occurred at the senior center when older adults worked with third grade students to create home escape plans using NFPA materials.

Either she or an instructor she designates visits each of the 37 Worcester Head Start classrooms three times a year, presenting lessons on the Learn Not to Burn (LNTB) program to more than 600 children.

Along with the award, Lt. Pickett also earned a $1,000 honorarium and free travel to Chicago for an award presentation at the general session of the NFPA Conference. The Worcester Fire Department will also receive a $1,000 donation to support public education activities.
