Home Fire Safety Survey

Fire Technology Instructor, Joseph Savage, talks to Rep. Susie Byrd about fire safety.

Joseph Savage, a retired Division Chief of the El Paso Fire Department and now a Fire Technology teacher at Austin High School's Sandra Day O'Connor Academy, and his students put together the power point presentation below in concert with the El Paso Fire Department for fire safety programs. Mr. Savage and his students assisted the Fire Department at their first ever community outreach program this past Saturday at Newman Park.

Assistant Fire Marshall and Newmanista Orlando Arriola called the event at Newman Park a success: "We provided 21 home safety surveys within the immediate neighborhood and also installed or issued 21 smoke detectors and 21 carbon monoxide alarms. An additional six requests were placed at the command post at the park for home surveys and smoke detector/CO alarm installations and the Fire Prevention Division will be following up in meeting those requests."

Here is the Home Fire Safety Survey:
