SURVIVAL KIDS is a fun and interactive educational program teaching life skills to elementary school age children. Patterned after the successful law enforcement “DARE” program, SURVIVAL KIDS places a trained firefighter into each 4th grade classroom each month to teach an important life skill.
These eight lessons are taught by volunteer firefighters at each elementary school within the jurisdiction of the Fire District. Starting in October following National Fire Prevention Week, over 25 classrooms are visited each month through out the school year. This program was recognized by the International Association of Fire Chief’s with the International Award for Excellence in 1996.
