City of Green Fire Division Seeks Sponsors for Fire Safety Education Materials
Green, OH – Do you remember when firefighters visited your school and taught fire safety? Or, maybe you remember how excited you were on your first trip to the fire station? The City of Green Fire Division is announcing their continuing fire safety education program and needs your help.
Our fire division has been deeply committed to a fire safety program, which specifically targets children featuring the character, Firepup®. In cooperation with the department, citizens and businesses will help the department provide an assortment of fire safety educational materials to local children. These materials are distributed in our schools, at safety fairs, through public presentations, and to children when they visit the fire station.
All educational materials are designed exclusively by National Fire Safety Council, Inc., a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit charitable organization. NFSC, Inc. is the largest distributor of fire and life safety materials for children in the U.S. Funding of these materials (under the charter of this organization) is done through charitable contributions. Local contributions would provide age-specific 24-page manuals for preschool up, pamphlets about smoke alarms, fire escape plans, safe meeting places, babysitters safety, firefighter sticker badges, fire-hats and many other items used to teach the fundamentals of fire and life safety and burn prevention.
In order to cover the cost of these materials, the City of Green Fire Division and National Fire Safety Council, Inc., are turning to leaders of this community for help. Sponsors are needed to help provide this annual program to the children, adults, and seniors in our community.
Supporters of this program will have their contributions acknowledged and specifically named on the prestige page of all fire safety activity manuals under the heading “PROVIDED BY THE PEOPLE WHO CARE.” All tax-deductible checks can be made payable to National Fire Safety Council, Inc.
