Educating the public is the most effective way to prevent the devastating effects of fires and other injuries, and to introduce strategies to deal with these emergencies. To accomplish this goal, the Pelham Batesville Department delivers fire and life safety education programs for the residents and businesses of our community. Fire and Life Safety programs are offered to all ages and groups for a better understanding of fire safety and what to do and not to do in the event of a fire.
Puppet programs are conducted for ages 4-8. Learn from Smokey the smoke detector and his friends on how to stay Fire Safe at home.
The Fire and Life Safety House is a mobile unit that allows our firefighters to teach children between the ages of 9-12 safe practices in and around the home, including how to escape a fire. The program, which takes 20–30 minutes per group, begins with a presentation that includes videos, pictures and other visual aids to demonstrate the dangers of fire. Afterward, the children can apply what they have learned when the Fire and Life Safety house is filled with artificial smoke and everyone must escape in a safe but swift manner.
For teenagers and adults learn how to conduct a Fire Safety Check of your home by using our Home Safety Checklist and how to find and correct fire hazards in your home. Learn “Hands-On” CPR, the proper way to use a fire extinguisher and how to check and maintain your smoke detectors.
