A member of NFPA’s Public Education Division Urban Fire and Life Safety Task Force has been chosen this week’s Excellent Educator by WCCO-TV in Minneapolis. The station says that Minneapolis firefighter Casidy Anderson’s passion for teaching residents in high-risk communities about fire safety made her an outstanding choice for the honor.

Anderson makes fire prevention education fun and engaging using props, costumes, coloring books and dynamic activities. She not only brings safety messages to the schools across Minneapolis but also English as a Second Language groups at churches and community centers. Adicionalmente, she teaches people who are deaf or hard of hearing.

For a number of years she has served on the Urban Fire and Life Safety Task Force, which is composed of public fire safety educators/community risk reduction officers from North American cities with populations of 250,000 or more. The purpose of the Task Force is to examine the unique challenges facing fire and life safety educators in large cities. The task force develops strategies to address those challenges and shares them with large city fire departments.

Anderson joined the Minneapolis Fire Department 16 years ago and moved into fire safety and prevention after eight years. “It’s a lot of fun,” she is quoted as saying. “I just love working with the community. I have the best job.”
