Young adults often feel that they are invincible and are in complete control of any situation. North Metro Fire Rescue District’s goal is to educate these students before they make a poor decision that could impact their lives forever. The purpose of the “Teen Safety” curriculum is to educate students on the dangers of kitchen fires, the misuse of candles, and safety behind the wheel. For instance, cooking fires are the number one cause of home fires and home injuries. In this class, teens will learn how to prevent fires and injuries in the kitchen and around the home.
North Metro Fire can provide professionals from every aspect of the fire service to discuss their career as part of a career fair or panel. Often the fire and life safety education officer will attend student career fairs to provide students with an overview of the various careers within the fire service and job requirements.
