Reading with the Fire Marshal and Friends

Fire Marshal Christensen and other HCFMO staff provide fire safety information before reading a children’s book. This program was created specifically in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Every reading incorporates a fire safety message that relates in some way to the theme of the book. Safety topics include: escape planning, smoke alarm education, cooking safety, and candle safety.
