NOCFA’S Fire and Life Safety Trailer
Thanks to a grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) NOCFA was able to purchase a new Fire and Life Safety Trailer. The trailer has a classroom area that is used to educate individuals about various fire safety topics including escaping a fire in a simulated area that can be filled with a non-toxic smoke. In addition to the classroom the trailer has a sprinkler demonstration area that shows the effectiveness of residential sprinklers. The graphics on the trailer are meant to be educational messages and teaching tools. The most effective graphic is a flashover graph that shows people how long they have to escape a fire, when typical smoke alarms activate, when sprinklers would activate, and the time it take for a fire department to start battling the blaze. This trailer is very unique and only 3 similar trailers exist in Michigan. Special features include strobe flashing smoke detectors for the hearing impaired along with a fire safety video in sign language, and a wheelchair ramp that allows disabled or handicapped individuals to participate in educational programs. This trailer is used throughout the community and surrounding area for various events.
