School Visits

The Tinley Park Fire Department conducts fire safety visits with Tinley Park schools with children in kindergarten through second grade. School visits begin in the fall in coordination with Fire Prevention Week. A Public Education representative makes children familiar with the gear a firefighter wears and discusses fire safety tips such as "Stop, Drop and Roll" and "Crawl Low in Smoke." Visits lead into the third grade program, "Fire Safety Smart," which teaches fire safety to children in the community.
