Public Education Programs
Fire safety programs are developed to address the concerns that became apparent through current Ontario Fire Marshal's statistics. Public fire education programs can also be tailored to suit individual and community needs. Programs include, but are not limited to programs for schools, businesses, civic organizations and older adults. These include lectures, audiovisual presentations and hands-on experience. All programs are monitored, assessed and revised annually as necessary.
Severn Fire & Emergency Services utilizes the following programs:
Fire Safety for Older Adult: Statistics show that adults over age 65 are at the highest risk of being killed or injured in a fire. The program is designed to be delivered with the assistance of community groups, home support workers, the media, and friends and families.
Alarms for Life: The objective of a smoke and carbon monoxide alarm program is to ensure the law is observed for all residential occupancies in the municipality.
TAPP-C (The Arson Prevention Program for Children): TAPP-C is an assessment and intervention program (ages 2-17) aimed at reducing the incidence of youth fire-setting in the community.
Sightline To Safety: This program requires registration and is designed to educate and assist the deaf or hard of hearing to prepare for an emergency by acquiring the correct devices for early warning and escape.
