Fire Safety Education: Lincoln Fire/Injury Prevention Program was founded in 2004 by officers certified as Public Fire and Life Safety Education Specialist with the primary goal of preventing loss of life and property thru education. In 2005, we ventured beyond the classic Stop, Drop and Roll era and implemented the NFPA Risk Watch Program into our schools and daycares. This program covers Motor Vehicle safety, Gun Safety, Fire Safety, Fall Injury Prevention, Water Safety, Choking and Poison Prevention to name a few. In 2006, we added the Fatal Vision Program to our high school program. This program is geared toward teaching teenagers the risks involved in under aged use of intoxicants such as alcohol and recreational drugs. It also allows us to vividly demonstrate the effects of intoxicants in a safe controlled manner.
In 2009, Lincoln Fire was able to document our first confirmed "Life Saved" as a direct result of our public education program. A five year old boy whom we taught Fire Safety during Fire Prevention week was awakened from a nap to find his bedroom on fire. The fire was between him and his door. He did exactly as he was taught and got low to the floor and crawled as far from the fire as he could, put a blanket over his face and screamed to get the attention of a family member and was rescued. Brantson Smith is alive today because of the life safety education he obtained from our program.
