FIRE SAFETY HOUSE


Fire Prevention and Life Safety is taught in each school in the PVVFD district each year, but we love to see the students throughout the year! The Fire Safety House is a great tool for the younger students to learn about fire safety and practice and escape drill. Would your community group like to learn about fire prevention and life safety? The Safety House is an educational tool but also very fun for all those involved!

SMOKE ALARM INSTALLATIONS

It is of the utmost importance for each home in our district to have working and properly placed smoke alarms. Roughly 2 out of 3 fire deaths happen in homes with no working smoke alarms. It is our goal to have smoke alarms in each home throughout the PVVFD district. If your home does not have smoke alarms, you need more alarms, or you need batteries replaced in your alarms please contact the PVVFD as soon as possible!

Smoke alarms needs to be replaced every ten years!
Smoke alarms should be placed in every bedroom, outside every bedroom and on every level of the home!

SEVERE WEATHER EDUCATION

Severe weather season can bring frightening storms, incredible damage and change lives in the blink of an eye. Many families do not practice for a severe storm and can be blind-sided by the side effects. The education provided by this tool is vital.

STATION TOURS

You’ve driven by our station a thousand times, but never been inside… Stop on by to check it out and see the fire trucks! Better yet – schedule a station tour with a group and make a day out of it! The firefighters would love to show you the gear, apparatus, and around the station! Station Tours make a great outing for Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, and Church Groups. Our most common station tours occur at Station 1 on Main St in Pleasant View and at Station 5 on Old Coopertown Rd in Robertson County.
