Safety Education Programs
The Elkhorn Fire Department offers a variety of public fire safety education programs. Some of the classes or programs are offered at the elementary schools and some are offered throughout the community. The education offered:
Fall Fire Safety Program
Fire Safety Program that takes place at the elementary level, usually during National Fire Safety Week in October. The department visits all elementary schools in the fire protection service area. The program includes 911 calling, smoke detector awareness, stop, drop and roll, planning fire escape routes, fire apparatus tours, and other fire safety information. This program will provide The Walworth County Fire Safety Smoke House when available.
Day Care Center Presentations
This is a program that is available for all day care centers both private and public. Through this program we are able to teach young children the basics of fire prevention and to show them how to respond in fire situations. It is never to earlier to learn fire safety.
Public Safety Presentations
The program continues to teach basic fire safety, how to install and maintain smoke detectors, identification and correction of home fire hazards, plan escape routes, extinguisher usage, reporting of emergencies, and the legal aspects of fire setting.
This program is available for companies/organizations both public and private who want to build their awareness of fire extinguisher usage and have an opportunity to use an extinguisher in a hands-on situation.
This program allows organizations and/or the community to come into the fire house and have a guided tour as well as a fire safety presentation. Call the station of your choice to set up a visit.
