DEMONSTRATION SAFETY TRAILER
Purchased in 1997 with community donations, the Fire Safety Trailer is a specially designed mobile home that allows children and adults alike a chance to watch what happens when fire ignites in the home. More importantly, it teaches us to identify fire safety hazards and to practice fire escapes from the home.Designed originally for kids, age 8 to 11, the trailer's key message is fire prevention. If you pay close attention inside, you'll actually be able to prevent the trailer's demonstration fire from occurring. But then you'd miss the great escape, which includes climbing down a ladder. Children love that feature. Adult participants are asked to exit through the door.
