“The NBFD is pleased to announce the SAFE Program and the Senior SAFE Program have been awarded $13,300 grant from the Department of Fire Services and Goverrnor Maura Healy.

The SAFE Program provides essential fire and life safety to our elementary schools where they gain the knowledge to understand the dangers of fire, how to escape a fire in their home, and what do if an emergency occurs in their home.

The Senior SAFE Program reaches out to our senior citizens and offers education on fire safety including cooking safety, safe use of home oxygen devices, and fall prevention.

The Department is proud of the hard work done by our SAFE Program and Senior SAFE Program.

Public Education Officer Anthony Poente and our SAFE Program members provide all types of fire safety education, fire extinguisher training, CPR and first aid training, and car seat installations.

Fire and safety education is one of the fire service’s core missions and the addition of a full time educator last year along with this grant funding insures we’ll continue providing this valuable training to the residents of the City of New Bedford.”-New Bedford Fire Department.
