Fire Safety - Businesses
Graham Fire Rescue seeks to lessen the effects of fire on the community thru early education of
area children and educating the public to safer practices. Each year Graham Fire Rescue along with
support of area businesses, Graham Independent School District, Open Door Christian School, and Local
daycare provide fire education to children from pre-school thru the fifth grade during Fire Prevention
We have been able to advance the program by purchasing a trailer built especially for this purpose.
This trailer gives the children the ability to see, feel and experience the sensations they would be
exposed to in a real fire helping them to practice the skills needed to safely get out in a real life
situation. Our children are a community's greatest asset and together with these programs and participation
of parents in safe practices and fire drills in the home we can be assured we are doing everything possible
to keep our future safe.
Together with the programs for children Graham Fire Rescue offers Fire Extinguisher classes for
businesses, performs fire inspection on businesses open to the public and offers fire inspections to
home owners. The purpose of fire inspections is to identify and correct fire hazards in order to reduce
chances of a fire, slow the spread of fire allowing everyone more time to escape and the Fire Department
to arrive. Limiting fire spread makes neighboring businesses safer and increases the chances of reopening
that business rather than having an empty shell and another business close it's doors.
