Long Beach Fire Ambassador’s Senior Program

By Jackawa Jackson | January 26, 2010

The Long Beach Fire Department is proud to announce the kick off of our Fire Ambassador’s Senior Program.  The fire ambassadors have been known as a highly motivated group of retirees who travel to local elementary schools, teaching fire safety to 3rd grade classes.  Now, they will go to various senior groups offering free seminars on topics including but not limited to: 
  1. Fire prevention tips for seniors
  2. Escape plans during various emergencies
  3. Injury prevention and accident control
  4. What to have in place prior to an emergency
This program will be beneficial to the community because it will be a program for seniors put on by seniors.  Free emergency preparation bags will be handed out to interested parties, while supplies last, at each of their classes.  Whether men and women live alone in a high-rise or with family in a 2-bedroom house, The Long Beach Fire Ambassadors want seniors to be prepared for any situation that may come their way.  

Anyone wishing to have the Fire Ambassadors come out and teach a class should call (562) 570-2563.
