Hello everyone. As another school year begins, I would like to take this opportunity to thank our partners, you the firefighters, our board and the entire school community who create time in their busy schedules to help deliver our fire prevention message.
Our Learn Not To Burn program has been presented differently over the past months however in person visits to our schools has resumed and I look forward to meeting with students and teachers as I travel Newfoundland and Labrador.
If I can be of assistance to your departments, please contact me at my email or by (709) 424 - 3624.
As another school year comes to an end, I would like to take this opportunity to thank our partners, educators, you the firefighters, and our board for their continued support of our Learn Not to Burn program.
During the past 15 months, our program has been delivered much differently to our schools, focusing on the most efficient and effective way to deliver our fire prevention message. In person presentations were not possible this year because of COVID 19 restrictions and were therefore presented virtually. Many thanks to the staff at NL911 for the space and the technical support needed to bring our program to the classrooms. We distributed approximately 20,000 educational items to 80 plus schools throughout Newfoundland and Labrador which helped to keep our message in the schools as well as provided an opportunity to keep in contact with teachers for future visits.
We have been working on a fire safety contest for students but due to school closures we were unable to continue this project, however it will be launched in the new school year. Also, during this past year, we have been working with an outside agency to deliver a fire prevention message which will be revealed next school year.
In closing, even though our program was delivered much differently this year we are hopeful that in person presentations will resume in the next school year. Take care.
As we enter a new school year, out LNTB program is facing new challenges and expectations. As a result,we are working hard to find ways to continue to educate our students while keeping within public health guidelines. Some of the areas we are exploring are: visiting schools virtually while continuing to network with our educators, video productions, outdoor school presentations, fire safety contests in each region, and Facebook, all of these while continuing to work with our local fire departments and NL911.
Even though this past school year was a short one, I visited schools from Port aux Basque to Labrador presenting our program to approximately 5,000 students. Also a big thank you to all our partners and sponsors. Your continued support is much appreciated.
Although our program will be delivered differently than in the past, we will be focusing on what is important, to deliver our LNTB program in the most effective and efficient way possible. We are living in unprecedented times, take care and stay safe.
