Storytime With A Firefighter
Due to COVID-19, the Town of Manchester’s Fire Marshal’s Office has created a month-long digital Children’s Fire Safety Program in lieu of their traditional Fire Prevention Week presentations at the Schools & Day Care Facilities.
Each Monday in November, a new video of Manchester Fire-Rescue-EMS personnel reading a children’s fire safety book will be posted to the “Manchester Fire-Rescue – EMS Fire Marshal’s” Facebook page.
Manchester’s Fire Marshal’s Office encourages parents to continue the conversation of dangers of fire & teach them about fire safety & prevention after watching these videos.
For parents who may not know how to begin the conversation, the Fire Marshal’s Office recommends considering the following questions:
- Does your family have a Meeting Place if there is a fire?
- Does your child know Stop-Drop-Roll?
- Do they know not to play with matches or lighters?
For questions, suggestions, and/or guidance on ways to teach your child/children about fire prevention and safety, please contact the Fire Marshal’s office directly at (860) 647-3267.
To watch the videos, keep up with Fire Safety & Prevention information, and virtually participate in family friendly activities, please “Follow”, “Like”, and “Share” Manchester Fire-Rescue-EMS

As the leaves start to change color and temperatures begin to drop, many people begin heading indoors and turning on their heaters for the first time this fall season. Fire Prevention Week comes at such a crucial time, taking place each October.
