Fire Prevention Education

Fort Oglethorpe Fire & Rescue has been doing fire prevention presentations in elementary schools for several years.  Our original fire education shows consisted of a firefighter showing a video and explaining fire safety.

In 1997, Fort Oglethorpe Fire & Rescue initiated a new innovated fire safety program to the our area.  The Fort Oglethorpe Fire & Rescue Clown Battalion was born with five clowns, three puppets, a small sound system for music and a remote control Dalmatian named Blazer.  The first few years, the Clown Battalion grew from going to a few area schools to handling all elementary schools on the west side of Catoosa County, GA, as well as, pre-schools from across the Tri-State area.

Our 2007 Fire Prevention Week shows reached over 3,000 children between 5 elementary schools and 15 child care centers.  During 2007, our educators started brainstorming for a new show.  The 2007 Fire Prevention Show was "There's No Place Like the Fire Station."  Each character from the Wizard of Oz played a part in fire safety while Bubbles was on her quest to find the fire station and her friend Peaches.  The children really enjoyed the new show.

In 2008, Fort Oglethorpe Fire & Rescue is taking a new direction on Fire Prevention Week again.  We have partnered with Catoosa County Fire Rescue to provide every school in Catoosa County with the same fire safety program to be held at Heritage High School.  We hope this year to be an even bigger success than each year in the past.
