Fire Department Programs
|The Warren Fire Department is actively involved in the promotion of fire safety education throughout our community. Both visual and oral presentations are provided on a wide range of fire- and safety-related topics to civic, business, and social and fraternal organizations.
Fire Safety Trailer
The fire safety trailer is used by department personnel as a public teaching aid, permitting children to experience the conditions of a house fire first-hand while allowing them to implement acquired safety techniques. Arranged as a miniature residence, the trailer has a living room and kitchen downstairs and a bedroom upstairs. As visitors progress through the trailer, they are made aware of fire hazards and taught safety techniques that could save their lives in the event of a fire, all while traveling through non-toxic smoke. Upon exit, literature is disseminated to reinforce those lessons taught inside. The trailer is an extremely popular teaching aid that is frequently used on site at the department, at all city elementary schools, and at a number of educational events throughout Trumbull County.
Junior Fire Marshall Program
The Warren Fire Department has conducted the Junior Fire Marshall Program for over 30 years. Lasting for roughly one hour, the program presents basic methods to minimize danger to lives and property through a variety of educational materials, including video, the Fire Safety Trailer, and a question-and-answer period. The program is coordinated through the Warren City School system and targets all students in the 5th grade.
Juvenile Fire Setter Program
Fire awareness and education are key elements of department public outreach regarding the dangers of fire, behavior that leads to the setting of fires, and information concerning the reasons behind fire-setting behavior. Four members of the department are trained in presenting age-appropriate fire safety information to children and their parents.
Home Alone Program
In conjunction with the Trumbull County chapter of the American Red Cross, the Warren Fire Department covers a variety of fire safety topics, including (but not limited to) not playing with matches or lighters, testing smoke detectors, stop drop and roll, calling 911, and always knowing two ways out in the event of a fire.
The Warren Fire Department offers safety classes to members of the general public who watch children or are in training to become certified babysitters.
Smoke Detector Program
Citizens who live in private dwellings and meet income guidelines as defined by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development are eligible to receive installation of free smoke detectors in their residence.
