In an Emergency, Do You Know What to Do?
The San Francisco Fire Department is conducting Community Safety Fairs throughout the year in each of the 10 Battalions. This is an effort to connect the communities they serve with their local Firefighters, EMT’s, and Paramedics, to allow local communities to meet the members of their nearby Fire Stations, and to provide the community with an overview of what the SFFD does.
Who Will You Meet?
Participating at each Community Safety Fair are the following:
1. Public Information Officer
2. Bureau of Fire Prevention Education Team
3. Fire Recruitment Team
4. EMS Medics for hands-only CPR and BP and Stop the Bleed
5. Battalion Members meeting the people they serve
6. NERT for disaster preparedness
7. Department of Emergency Management for 911 calls and disaster preparedness
What Will You Learn?
The Community Safety Fair will include Fire Prevention and Education materials, demonstrations such as how to use a Fire Extinguisher, and answers to inspection questions. Department members will teach hands-only CPR, and a Recruitment team will be available to answer questions related to the hiring process. Free Smoke detectors will be available while supplies last to residents of San Francisco.
