The Los Angeles County Fire Department’s Community Outreach Program establishes programs such as school visits, safety expos and special events. The programs often consists presentations by uniformed firefighters with question and answer sessions. Materials available for presentation include slide shows, videos, handouts, stickers and hats. All programs tend to focus on general injury prevention, safety, fire prevention and escape in case of fire. The Fire Department’s representative presents information in a manner that is appropriate for different age groups. Generating interest in the profession of firefighters generates important safety and fire prevention awareness in the community. Studies show that young children are at an elevated risk of getting seriously injured or dying in residential fires. Public awareness campaigns and education programs can help keep children and families safe from the threat of home fires.
