Syracuse Fire Department to Issue Carbon Monoxide and Fire Prevention Warnings

On Wednesday, Jan. 24, 1:10 p.m. Fire Chief Michael Monds and city firefighters will deliver winter fire prevention and safety alerts to children at Dr. King Elementary School. Students will receive training on fire safety and will receive information on the importance of working smoke detectors, as well as the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning.

“We’ve had serious carbon monoxide poisoning incidents this winter. Fortunately, the incidents were discovered early enough to prevent any fatalities,” Monds said. “Families need to be aware of the risks and take the steps to protect themselves.”

Firefighters will also run student learning stations on fire prevention, burn/injury prevention, fire escape planning, and how firefighters support the community.

Participants will include:

  • 1st and 2nd Grade Students, Dr. King Elementary School
  • Syracuse Fire Chief Michael Monds
  • Syracuse Fire Department Training Professionals and Firefighters
