The Saraland Fire Rescue Department has a comprehinsive approach to Life safety Education. Gone are the days of going by the fire station to talk to a firefighter about fire safety. We have personnel dedicated to educating our public about not only fire safety, but fall prevention for the elderly, hurricane preparation, and home safety inspections.
We have a mobile "smokehouse" that we take directly to children in order to teach them what to do if they are ever in a fire. This unit also allows us to teach children how to dial 911, kitchen safety and severe weather awareness. This program, started in 2002, would not have been possible without a grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency. This grant allowed us to purchase the education trailer and a tow vehicle along with all of the needed materials to provide this service to the public.For more information or to schedule a visit email Jeff Ludlam .
