The Hazard House fire safety prop is used first with kids to create awareness to fire hazards. This to be an intro to the ‘mock apartment’ (live size) built-in the main education facility. With classes of up to 30 students per presentation, the educator would tour the ‘Hazard House’ from room to room. The negatives scenarios are replaced by a safe and secured environment, for them and their families!
The CCSEV educational program has never stopped during the pandemic ! Due to distancing regulations, students were not allowed to visit the CCSEV. The education program was then readapted to reach the student directly in their classrooms… With a camera, the CCSEV Educators would go through the Hazard House simulator from room to room. Thus permitting the continuation of their CCSEV educational presentations using zoom internet platform. Online teaching was the answer!
