Fire Safety and Education

Fire Safety refers to a proactive method of reducing emergencies and the precautions that are taken to prevent or reduce the likelihood of a fire that may result in death, injury, or property damage. The Cranberry Township Volunteer Fire Company (CTVFC) believes that public education is the first step in fire and injury prevention. We strive to eliminate fire by the education of the general public to hazards around them and how to deal with them. In furtherance of Fire Safety and Education, the CTVFC offers these public service programs:

PUBLIC SERVICE COMMUNITY PROGRAMS

FIRE SAFETY HOUSE (FiSH)

Fire safety on wheels. This mobile trailer contains a kitchen and bedroom, and is equipped to teach children how to properly escape in the event of a fire. Participants will receive instruction in the proper use of 9-1-1. FiSH is available for safety fairs, neighborhoods, organizations and schools.

The fire safety house is available for your event upon request from April 1st- September 30th

OPERATION SIDEWALK (NEIGHBORHOOD VISITS)

Community groups may request a CTVFC fire engine visit to participate in community events. Fire equipment may be parked at your event to afford the opportunity to observe and handle fire equipment and we teach fire safety at these events.

FIRE STATION TOUR

Groups have the opportunity to schedule a visit at either of our stations to see actual fire equipment up close and to learn about fire safety. The tour is a hands-on experience.

FIREFIGHTER IN GEAR

The effect of seeing a firefighter in full turnout gear in a flaming, smoke-filled environment or in the classroom can be a frightening experience for a child. This program is designed to familiarize children with firefighters and their protective gear. The goal is to create the perception of firefighters as friendly.

HAZARD HOUSE

This fire safety tool is a pop-up three (3) story house identifying and simulating home fire and safety hazards. It is ideal for a classroom or a rainy day presentation.

9-1-1 EMERGENCY CALLING

What to do if you have an emergency. This program is designed to teach children how and when to call 9-1-1. Encourages callers to know their full name, address and telephone number. A simulated 911 call is used as an interactive activity.

FIRE ESCAPE PLAN

This program is designed to teach the basics of recognizing, planning, and safely exiting a home or structure during a fire emergency. Learn how to create a home escape plan, how and when to test home smoke alarms, and the proper way to exit a building.

FIRE EXTINGUISHER TRAINING

Everyone owns one, but few have ever used one. This program provides information of how and when to use a fire extinguisher correctly and safely. A Fire Extinguisher Simulator is used as a teaching aid.

CORPORATE TRAINING

Members of the Fire Safety & Education team train employees of local businesses the proper use of fire extinguishers and emergency evacuation procedures. Also available is a PowerPoint presentation on the dynamics of fire. Ideal for safety programs.

These programs can be scheduled by calling (724)-776-1196, Fire Prevention Extension, or by completing the contact form, stating which type of program you would like to have. A member of the Fire Safety & Education Team will contact you. These programs are age-specific and will vary according to your groups needs.

Other fire safety topics available for presentation:

FIRE BEHAVIOR – Types of fire, heat transfer, flame spread & toxic gases.

FIRE SAFETY FOR SENIOR CITIZENS

SEASONAL FIRE HAZARDS – Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter & Holiday

All of these programs are performed by VOLUNTEERS free of charge to members of the community!
