The Cottleville Fire District has rolled out its new Fire Education Safety Program. Thanks to the passing of our 2012 C.A.R.E.S. initiative, a new full time Public Fire Educator position was created, thus fulfiling a promised made to our tax payers to make Fire Safety Education a priority for our children in our schools. This lesson plan is made available by the National Fire Protection Association
and is called, “Learn not to Burn”, it introduces 1st grade students to life saving fire safety lessons. These lesson plans consist of six objectives and is designed to be taught in the classroom, and then is followed up with a visit by our Public Fire Educator, who talks to the students about what they have just learned thus, reinforcesing each of the lesson objectives. Our goal is to have all of our schools that are in our Fire District participate in this safety program says newly hired Dan Faulkner, (Public Fire Educator). The lifesaving potential of this program is worth all of our time effort. We will continue to provide the opportunity for this program to be made available to all of our Elementary Schools that we serve. If your School is interested in this program, or if you want more information on this program, please contact Dan Faulkner (Public Fire Educator) at our office (636) 447-6655 ext 8727.
