Garland FD take fire prevention on the road!

On Wednesday, April 21 a few members from the Garland Fire Department and the Box Elder County fire marshal, Greg Martz, took the state smoke trailer and headed out west. We visited with kids at Snowville, Park Valley and Grouse Creek schools to talk about fire prevention/safety and let them experience the state’s smoke trailer. We talked with the kids on what to do during a fire, lessons on when and how to call 911 and a little bit about wildland urban interface awareness. The kids took turns trying on turnout gear and getting a little bit of an idea what it’s like to walk in a firefighter’s boots. The firefighters that went had a great time, as the kids welcomed us with lots of questions and smiles despite the gloomy, rainy weather. It sure looked liked the kids has a lot of fun also.

They all got a chance to go through the smoke trailer as well. The trailer is full of lessons on fire safety. How to be safe in all around the home to include in the kitchen with small kids around and what a smoke detector sounds like even. A few kids even to make a practice call to 911! The best part was when they all gathered in a bedroom setting and the room filled with smoke. The kids were all taught to stay calm and how to exit their room when they can’t get out their door. The children all did great by remaining calm and climbing out an available window. The kids were treated to all kinds of prizes by the time it was all over. Thanks kids for the warm welcome we’ll see you next year.

Fire prevention lessons are an important part of any fire department’s job. If you would like the Garland Fire Department to visit your school or organization just get in touch with us. Or, with a little planning any group or organization, young or old, will be more than welcome to come by our station for a tour.
