Captain James Brooks of the Danvers Fire Department received the 2021 Fire & Life Safety Educator of the Year Award at the 26th Annual Massachusetts Fire & Life Safety Education Conference, State Fire Marshal Peter J. Ostroskey announced today. Throughout 2020, Captain Brooks worked with the Danvers IT Department and school system to deliver the Student Awareness of Fire Education (S.A.F.E) program to students, overcoming the challenges of remote education during the pandemic. During his time as the Danvers Fire Department’s Fire Prevention Officer, he has inspired not one but two “Young Heroes,” who kept their cool during fires and used their knowledge to help others escape safely. Captain Brooks is known for elevating the quality of the Department’s fire prevention programming, and has been training his successor well in advance of his retirement next year.
