NFPA has selected Sherrie Leeka, Public Education Officer for the Westminster Fire Department, Westminster, CO, the 2016 Fire and Life Safety Educator of the Year. Leeka will be recognized at NFPA’s Conference & Expo , the premier event in fire and life safety, this June in Las Vegas.

The Fire and Life Safety Educator of the Year award, presented annually, recognizes an educator who works for a local fire department or fire marshal’s office in the U.S. or Canada, and uses NFPA’s materials in consistent and creative ways, demonstrates excellence and innovation in reaching out to the community, and views NFPA as the leading source for fire safety information.

Known for her passion and enthusiasm for public education, Sherrie has developed the Citizen Fire Academy, covering the topics of fire prevention, hazardous materials in the home, water and ice safety, and fitness and wellness. She has coordinated “Fire Factor,” a program designed to prevent fire setting among 6e to 8e graders, instituted a home safety educational program for older adults, and for the Halloween carnival, created a “haunted” safety tent, getting dressed up in part costume, part fire gear to present safety information.

One of Leeka’s talents is working with children. When visiting schools, she tailors her programs, lessons and contests to suit the grade level she is speaking to, allowing students to easily grasp the concepts of fire and life safety. Leeka’s lessons are filled with valuable information and are engaging for students because she uses various models and teaching techniques to ensure her programs are compelling.

Leeka is a member and past president of the Fire and Life Safety Educators of Colorado, past president of Safe Kids Colorado, and has participated in NFPA’s Remembering When™ training conference and implemented the program locally.
