Night School: How we reach volunteer fire prevention advocates

title

By Kelly Ransdell

On Monday to kickoff Fire Prevention Week, NFPA hosted a pilot fire safety workshop for volunteer firefighters, fire marshals, and fire chiefs in the western part of NC. This workshop was a great chance to learn about all the free resources that NFPA provides to enhance your efforts during Fire Prevention Week and beyond. This exciting workshop included videos and lesson plans like the Chicago Fire of 1871 and the history of why we celebrate FPW. I was excited to explore new ways to get education out to the folks that cannot attend classes during the day but volunteer their time to help their communities. As you know: Firefighters are Community Helpers and when you need them Firefighters are on their way! Thank you for your commitment to fire safety day and night.
