The Germantown Fire Department is actively involved in educating the public in fire safety, and numerous other topics. We host an annual Fire Safety Fair in October, visit schools and offices, and participate in many community events. It is our hope that through these efforts, we can prevent many emergencies from occurring, rather than responding to them when they do occur.
The biggest public education initiative ever undertaken by the Germantown Fire Department is the building of the Germantown Survive Alive House. This is an actual house, constructed for the education of people of all ages, designed to promote safety. Construction of the house was started in 2001, and it is anticipated completion is in 2003. The house has been funded by donations, grants, and contributed time and materials. Upon completion, the house will be used for all kinds of educational activities, from fire safety to CPR classes. Please contact Lieutenant Terry Minor with questions, or to arrange a contribution.
