Lesson plan for places of worship
When conducting focus groups among ministers serving people in a high-risk to fire community in Memphis, the public education division learned that ministers would be willing to have a fire safety educator or firefighter give a fire safety presentation to the congregation during the actual service.
This is a 10-minute presentation that can be given by fire safety educators or firefighters at a place of worship. (It would also be fitting for a community meeting.)
The presentation focuses only on the most important prevention, smoke alarm, and escape information. You can add local statistics and a personal experience. Download the presentation. (PDF, 411 KB)
