Frisco Fire Safety Town offers Safety Education Programs to Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts in kindergarten through fifth grades. Our Scout Programs occur each Tuesday and Thursday at 3:45 PM. Topics offered are Basic First Aid, Bicycle Safety, Fire Safety and Severe Weather Safety. Each program lasts approximately 45 minutes-1 hour and is taught by a Frisco firefighter. After a short classroom presentation, there is a hands-on activity to reinforce the subject taught. The program ends with a 10 minute bike ride in the village.
The scouts will engage in fire escape training in our smoke bedroom as part of the Fire Safety Program as well as learn how to 'duck and cover' in our safety house, as part of our Severe Weather Program. Our Bike Safety Program includes an opportunity to practice hand signals and obey traffic signals while riding bikes in our village. Our Basic First Aid class participants put together a first aid kit, to demonstrate their knowledge of proper preparedness.
Our programs are meant to teach young children basic skills necessary to help prevent, prepare, recognize and respond in a given emergency situation. Our classes may not meet the requirements to obtain a badge for the topic presented. For instance, our Basic First Aid program does not include CPR or the Heimlich. It is not a certification class.
We do have Frisco Fire Safety Town patches available for sale in our General Store for $2.00 each. If you would like to purchase a patch for your scout, please plan to do so before the program begins.
Registration for Scout Programs will be available starting August 6, 2012. Scout Programs start on September 18th. Please check back in August 2012 for registration instructions.
