Fires are the number one cause of death in the home for children ages 5 to 14. Together, we can prevent our children from becoming one of those statistics.
Medford Fire reaches into the homes of 4th grade students by visiting schools and presenting "Hazard House ~ Survival Skills for the Home." This interactive presentation teaches children valuable information about smoke alarms, home hazards, and exit drills.
We ask teachers to encourage families to work together as they complete a Fire and Life Safety Quiz and, most importantly, develop a Home Fire Escape Plan. Students are encouraged to have fun and be creative!
