Fire Safety Education Trailer
Fire Safety Trailer

The Fire Safety Education Trailer is a teaching tool that capitalizes upon multisensory stimuli. This type of teaching strategy is indispensable because it incorporates visual, auditory and tactile/kinesthetic stimuli. Essentially, the Fire Safety Education Trailer is an educational instrument in which see, hear and touch components are inherent. Through student participation and involvement in many and varied 'hands on' stimulations, the overall student learning experience is enhanced and the knowledge and skills imparted are reinforced. Consequently, within this optimal learning environment, students are taught how to prevent fires as well as how to act should they find themselves in a fire situation.

The Fire Safety Education Trailer is used to teach fire safety to high risk populations; therefore, special attention is directed toward children as well as senior citizens.  The trailer is available upon request by the various senior and other community groups throughout the Township of Maplewood. Furthermore, the Fire Safety Education Trailer will be handicapped accessible to enable participation of those individuals with special needs.

The personnel within the Maplewood Fire Department that are charged with lesson plan development, providing instruction or supervising the provision of instruction possess a New Jersey Division of Fire Safety Fire Instructor Certification. Several of these individuals have baccalaureate degrees.

If you would like to reserve the Fire Safety Education Trailer for your group, please contact the Bureau of  Training and Fire Safety at (973) 762-6500.
