The Lancaster County Firemen’s Association operates a Fire Safety Trailer for public fire education at no cost the member organizations and their schools, day care centers, and community groups. The trailer is essentially a small house on wheels used to demonstrate fire conditions and provide education to children.
This trailer includes a miniature kitchen, living area, bedroom, and balcony. It can hold approximately 25 children per training session and is loaded with state-of-the-art technologies including residential sprinkler heads, interconnected smoke alarms, a stove suppression system, and a collapsible ladder that provides for safe egress from the balcony. Another innovative feature is the “SOS” light switch that can make a post lamp blink to allow firefighters to locate a structure more easily. The trailer also features a door with a built-in heating element to teach children to sense for fire and heat prior to opening a door. All of these features are in addition to the synthetic smoke generator and can be activated from the central control room.
