Burn Prevention Description

Hot water burns like fire. Turn your hot water heater down to a comfortable temperature to prevent unnecessary scalds and burns. Always supervise children with water and teach them to turn on the cold water first, then the hot to make the water warm. Test bath water before putting children in to bathe.

Helping Hugs Teddy Bear Program Description
 

Our goal is to provide a teddy bear or other stuffed animal to each child involved at the scene of an accident or traumatic incident. We believe that it will relieve some of the trauma and confusion children experience when involved in car accidents, fires, or other traumatic situations. This makes the firefighter’s job a little easier by comforting the child and building a trust or bond with the child thus enabling a less-stressful and more thorough evaluation of the child’s injuries or comfort during a stressful situation through a teddy bear.
