Fire-Safety Education for Children
The Sandy Springs Fire Rescue department offers educational programs that are available to schools, religious groups and social clubs in Sandy Springs.
The following programs are designed for elementary school aged children and are perfect for teaching them valuable safety lessons.
- Friendly Firefighter - Sandy Springs firefighters don their personal protective equipment and teach children how each item is used. The firefighter assures the children that even though they look different, they are still friends who help.
- Fire truck tours - Our firefighters show children a fire truck and the equipment that is used on a daily basis. Children learn how firefighters help people.
- Career day presentations - We explain to children what they do during a normal day at the fire station. Children learn what it is like to be a firefighter, as well as how firefighters help people in the Sandy Springs Community.
- Fire safety education - Our firefighters teach children how to prevent fires and what to do in case a fire does occur. Topics include: matches and lighters, stop,drop and roll, kitchen safety, hot/dangerous items in the home, crawling low under smoke, meeting places, smoke detectors, first aid and more.
