Brewster Fire/Rescue Visits Local Schools for Fire Prevention Week

On Monday October 7 Captain Jeff Sturtevant and FF Richard Bunker visited the Town’s local elementary schools to present several classroom and hands-on based fire and life safety education programs to the students and staff. The sessions were designed to educate the attendees on several fire and life safety tips such as smoke detector use, calling 911, kitchen fire safety, crawling low in smoke, stop, drop, and roll, and developing and practicing home escape plans. During the day staff utilized the department’s new Fire Safety Education trailer to create real-life scenarios using theatrical smoke and other built-in props to educate the students in these life-saving techniques. 

Brewster Fire/Rescue would like to thank the staff at the Eddy and Stony Brook Schools for supporting Fire Prevention Week and for allowing us to educate the children in these essential fire and daily life safety practices.
