FIRE DEPARTMENT

School Presentations

One of the reasons the United States has the worst fire statistics in the world is the lack of fire safety education in the classroom. SBM prides itself in being able to deliver hundreds of classroom presentations each year.

These range from preschool to high school demonstrations and can last either a single class period or an entire school day. The National Fire Protection Agency has developed two proven highly successful curriculums in “Learn Not to Burn” and “Risk Watch.”

Jeff Lundquist is the contact for schools and works with countless local teachers to implement this into the standards curriculum.

Ever wonder what you would do if your smoke detector went off in the the middle of the night? Well the safe escape house is a miniature home capable of simulating a bedroom fire and requires participants to crawl low in smoke, feel the door to see if it is hot, and exit out a window and down a ladder.
