UTFD ANNOUNCES FIREPUP PROGRAM

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?

 

For 25 years, the Union Township Fire Department has been deeply committed to safety and fire prevention programs geared toward all its citizens, from school children to senior citizens and businesses. 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 stations.

 

“This program also provides materials for adults and senior citizens in the community,” said Union Township Fire Chief Stan Deimling. “These materials feature vital information targeted at specific age groups, about fire safety for individuals and their families.

 

Deimling said he is proud that fire safety education is a year-round activity for his department, not just during Fire Prevention Week.

 

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 through fifth grades, 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.

 

“We strongly believe that by making children aware, we can prevent tragic fire loss and death,” Deimling said.

 

In order to cover the cost of these materials, the Union Township Fire Department and National Fire Safety Council Inc. are turning to leaders of Union Township for help. Sponsors are needed to help provide this annual program to the children, adults and seniors in our community.

 

Supporters of the 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., federal tax ID number 38-2292422, and mailed to:

Chief Stan Deimling would like to thank everyone in advance for their generous support of this program. Through our partnership in providing these materials to our school children, they will be able to continue to work on their goal of making our community safer for all our citizens.
