The Erskine Lakes Fire Company in conjunction with the Skyline Lake Fire Department and Stonetown Fire Company are pleased to host our Ringwood Fire Prevention Week each October.
The Ringwood Fire Companies visit each of the Borough schools during Fire Prevention Week. A group of Firefighters from each Company instructs students in the do’s and don’ts of Fire Safety. Interactive games and lessons are part of the
program to aide children in the event of a fire-related Emergency.
To conclude each day, students tour the Fire trucks as well as get to see the equipment and other tools that each truck carries.
Kids are given the opportunity to use fire hose like the firefighters do, use a fire extinguisher, search for victims in a simulated room, and learn to escape a smoke-filled room.
The event continues to be a huge success, and we, as firefighters look forward to this community presentation each year during Fire Prevention Week.
The 2013 event was a success. Check back in the summer of 2014 for the schedule of the 2014 Fire Prevention Week events.
