Candy Giveaways to Promote Fire Safety & Prevention
A visit to the fire house, a classroom presentation by fire fighters, a field trip to a fire training facility, all can be exciting for school age children or adults for that matter. But beyond the novelty of interacting with these heroes and role models of society, the message of fire safety is one that stands as a goal of these activities. Students need to be focused on the concept of fire prevention and the fire safety procedures that are required for survival in an emergency situation. Reinforcing the lessons of the fire safety lessons, such as stop, drop and roll and not to play with fire is a goal of educators. Fire prevention chocolates and fire safety lollipops can be distributed to students as a reward for their participation in the lesson and to remind them of the slogans that they were introduced to by the emergency staff.
Community outreach events to help spread awareness of smoke detectors and carbon monoxide alarms are critical to the safety of residents. Through fairs and open houses, fire fighters can hand out information to help residents incorporate routine checks of their equipment. Handing out fire helmet chocolates and fire safety lollipops can build interest in visiting these safety fairs, increasing the number of community members that are exposed to these important awareness lessons.
