The Smithtown Fire Department is deeply committed to providing education to children and adults in preventing and surviving fires and other dangerous situations.
The Department has an extensive fire prevention program that utilizes a number of different methods to teach fire safety to the residents of Smithtown.
Throughout the year, the Department’s fire prevention team provides safety lectures, visits Smithtown schools and offers extensive tours of the firehouse to a number of community organizations.
The Smithtown Fire Department maintains a fire prevention trailer that is used to educate the public on how to escape a fire. The trailer is designed to fill its rooms with a non-toxic smoke to simulate the conditions found in an actual fire.
Participants can view, first hand, how smoke behaves and learn how to escape as visibility decreases. We travel with the fire prevention trailer to schools, houses of worship, civic organizations and special events throughout the course of the year.
In conjunction with National Fire Prevention Week, the Department hosts an annual Fire Prevention Day. The event features hands-on activities for children and demonstrations by department firefighters.
The Department also offers a babysitting class to participants who are twelve years of age or older. Students are taught about various safety situations that might arise during babysitting. The class also learns basic first aid and CPR skills.
