PUBLIC FIRE EDUCATION IN THE COMMUNITY
The City of Alcoa Fire-Rescue Department provides public fire education to all groups in the community from preschool to senior citizen groups. To request a visit call (865) 380-4998 or email DStinnett@cityofalcoa-tn.gov
The mobile classroom is specially designed to aid in the instruction of fire safety techniques through fun, safe simulation of common hazards. Our fire safety house is equipped with a kitchen, bedroom and living room complete with seating for approximately 20 students.
The fire safety house fills with nontoxic water based smoke. This realistic environment teaches students to crawl low to safety and have an exit plan. A heated door assists students in choosing the correct exit.
Severe weather programs are also conduced with a slight change in the fire safety house. During the weather simulation, students experience a real life tornado complete with lightning, sounds of the storm and power failure.
All tours are fun and educational with each tour conducted at appropriate material for the age group.
To schedule a visit for your group call (865) 380-4998 or email DStinnett@cityofalcoa-tn.gov
