Reporting an Emergency...
A closed circuit telephone system will allow children to dial 911 and to practice reporting an emergency. Adults will view a video or display on how a call is received and how the information is dispatched from the communications center.

The mobility of the Safety and Fire Education House increases visibility in our community and provides greater accessibility to specific groups and the general public. The unit enhances the majority of our film and lecture presentations by providing additional "hands-on" instruction. It is a highly versatile unit as topics and displays can be directed to suit any particular age group.
