The Williamsburg Fire Department performs lectures and presentations to groups of all ages concerning fire and life safety. We feel that it is important to learn safety practices from a young age and continue to learn through adulthood. Research has shown that children as young as five are capable of learning lifesaving techniques, such as:
- Exit drills in the home (EDITH)
- Safe cooking practices
- Smoke alarm maintenance
- Understanding the difference between a tool and a toy
Firefighters are able to perform lectures and demonstrations to anyone who is willing and able to learn. They can be performed specifically to your group's needs. The lectures are free of charge and can be scheduled by contacting Fire Administration at 757-220-6220.
