When used correctly child safety seats can prevent injuries and save lives. Four out of 5 car seats are installed wrong. We can help make sure yours is installed correctly for free if you are a Wauwatosa resident. Contact us to schedule your car safety installation or check.
CPR is a life-saving skill that anyone can learn. We offer adult, child, and infant CPR, as well as, choking and automatic external defibrillator (AED) use. You will get hands on practice on mannequins and use a training AED. This 3 hour class is offered at Wauwatosa Fire Station #51. The cost is $75. We don't currently have any upcoming classes scheduled at this time.
Health and Safety Employee Fairs
Employers may request a booth at their annual fair. We are happy to supply educational information and answer any questions. We love getting out and meeting the public.
Teachers or administrators can request us to visit their school. We can talk about fire safety, explain what it is like to be a firefighter, offer tours of the apparatus, and answer any questions.
Our Fire Educator Coordinator and a Public Health Nurse can assess your home for falling risks. During the assessment we will teach you strategies to prevent falls and fires. We will also provide resources needed, like smoke alarms and motion sensors.
We are always happy to create a program based on the needs of your organization.
A lock box may reduce the amount of time for emergency responders to enter your home. In an emergency, the dispatcher will notify first responders that there is a lock box on your home. Only the Fire Department has keys to open the lock boxes. No one else can use the box to access your home, not even you. Contact us to purchase a box.
Do you check your smoke alarms monthly? Do you have at least one on each level and outside sleeping areas? Have you replaced the battery recently? Does your family have an escape plan and meeting place? If you answer is no to any of these questions, we can help. We will come out and check you smoke alarms. If your alarms at not working properly, we will replace them for you at no charge for Wauwatosa residents.
If you learn the skills and basic tools to stop bleeding in an emergency situation until first responders are able to take over, lives can be saved. We provide training to stop bleeding. Call us or visit www.bleedingcontrol.org for more information.
