Although it is not one of the many functions that are mandated by the Connecticut General Statutes, public fire safety education is one of the many top priorities. Through public education, the Orange Fire Marshal’s Office takes a proactive approach to fire prevention. There have been incredible advances in our program. Through the use of PowerPoint for classroom settings, our fire safety “Hazard House” which allows for interaction with the audience to make our “house” safe from fire, and our portable fire extinguisher training system, our audiences get excellent educational opportunities!
The development of various programs every year are one of the many tasks taken on by the staff of the Orange Fire Marshal’s Office. Through creation of fire prevention education programs, we are able to make them group or age-specific, and a strong fire safety message with current data and technology is delivered to our target audience!
