Prevention through Education
Public education is a very special function operating within the bureau providing fire safety education to the public on the hazards and prevention of fires. The Public Education Unit conducts fire safety education throughout the school systems within the township, including special programs for preschoolers and kindergarten students.
Special projects such as the bureau annual fire prevention contest and the fire prevention week bulletin board contest are important projects of the education unit. Providing special speakers on topics of fire safety, learn not to burn awareness, woodstove safety, and arson awareness are also among the responsibilities of the public education unit.
A career day program for the youth of our town can be obtained through this section, as well as a special education treat by Robbie the Robot Fire Plug, the fire safety trailer and our newest addition the hazard house simulator. The Public Education Unit is dedicated to the bureau's motto, "Prevention through education".
