Your fire department is in an excellent position to increase community awareness and provide age-appropriate education about preventing home fires and addressing other life safety issues. At the same time, it’s essential to build rapport with the local news media to incorporate fire and life safety messaging into relevant news stories. This webinar will discuss strategic ways to develop a positive relationship with citizens, other stakeholders and local media outlets to connect with the community, as well as existing resources and lesson plans available to enhance your fire prevention initiatives.
