Fire Marshal's Office - Fire Prevention Information


The fire department is heavily involved in fire prevention and education activities for children, adults, civic groups, schools and businesses. Our programs consist of:

"The Sesame Street Fire Safety Project" (the fire department is responsible for bringing this program into the Broome County area approximately 30 years ago)

"Freddie the FireTruck" robot

"Juvenile Firesetters Intervention Program"

"Home Escape Plan"

 ''Sparky's Schoolhouse'' is a classroom portal for teachers. It includes music videos, lesson plans, eBooks and apps.

We currently have several FF's who have been trained and present these programs to children in Pre-K through the 6th grade. Local youth groups are also administered to.

The fire department also provides fire prevention and education to community service groups and businesses in the form of speaking engagements, fire extinguisher demonstrations and training, fire drills, etc.

There is never a charge for our fire prevention programs. If you would like to take advantage of these programs, please email or call the Fire Marshal's Office at 729-0428.

 

The "Firehouse Puppets" are very popular with schools ... please call at least 2 weeks in advance of the date you would like them to visit. The program is of benefit to children from Pre-K through the 6th grade. It's a "great" show ... the children love and "listen" to them ... invite them soon!

A comprehensive business inspection program is also an important aspect of our fire prevention program. Each business and public assembly is inspected annually.
