Milwaukee Fire Department has an education program to teach young people about the dangers of fire and fire safety. The Mobile Survive Alive House is an integral part of this program. “The job of firefighting has evolved over the years, educating children on fire safety has become an important part of our community efforts,” stated Lieutenant Michael Ball, Community Relations Director for the Milwaukee Fire Department, “The Survive Alive House is a key component of how we demonstrate fire safety to children.”
The Mobile Survive Alive House will be taken to schools and appear at various events throughout the Milwaukee area. “This mobile unit allows us to go to our citizens anywhere in the city to educate them about fire safety. This will help us achieve our yearly goal of zero fire deaths in Milwaukee,” said Milwaukee Deputy Fire Chief, John Litchford.
