|SMOKE DETECTOR PROGRAM
Twice a year, Firefighters partner with neighborhood groups and conduct neighborhood blitzes going door-to-door asking residents to test their smoke detector and passing out fire safety literature. KCKFD also takes part in the national program, “Change Your Clock-Check Your Battery,” conducted by the International Association of Fire Chiefs where residents are encouraged to change the battery in their smoke detector twice a year when they reset their clocks for daylight savings time. Smoke Detector installations are available for homeowners, applications can be found at your local fire station.
|FIRE PREVENTION PROGRAM
Our employees conduct fire safety training with students, families and senior citizens in Kansas City, KS to educate the dangers associated with fire. We visit all elementary, middle and senior high schools awaring students of proper fire safety skills. Each year, Fire Prevention personnel conduct an annual fire safety contest during Fire Prevention Week in October where students submit home escape plans, marking where primary and secondary exits are situated and where all smoke detectors are located. Winners are recognized at school assemblies and are awarded bicycles donated by the Kansas City Metro Firefighters Burn Foundation.
