Division Public Education and Outreach
Fire Prevention and Education continues to be a large part of what we do. We had many Public Education opportunities this year both on and off site. The interaction with our community and trying to prevent fires from happening, while knowing what to do if there is a fire is extremely important.
Norfolk Fire’s efforts in the area of Peer Support continue to be a focus. We offered training this spring that will be available to current staff, retirees and their families. The class titled “Saving Those Who Save Others” will be an important component in helping our responders and their families better understand how to deal with the highs and lows that exist in the world of Public Safety.
The Norfolk Fire and Police Color Guard assisted in many events to include parades, public meetings and funerals.
