College teams with Firefighters Museum to produce short video for National Fire Prevention Week

Waldorf College recently partnered with the Alabama Firefighters Museum and Education Center to produce a public service announcement for National Fire Prevention Week, Oct. 5-11, and Fire Prevention Month (October).

Sponsored by the National Fire Prevention Association, Fire Prevention Week’s goal is to educate and assist citizens, particularly children, in learning the basics of fire safety and planning. This year’s theme is “Working Smoke Alarms Save Lives.”

In promoting this valuable message, Waldorf asks all media outlets and websites to air the PSA in support of smoke alarm safety. The 30-second video features Billy Hayes, a member of the Board of Directors of the Alabama Firefighters Museum, offering instructions on testing and maintaining smoke alarms.

To download the PSA, visit http://www.waldorf.edu/firepsa2014. Specifications can be adjusted if needed for video formats.

Based in Forest City, Iowa, Waldorf is a liberal arts institution that offers regionally accredited residential and online degrees that address popular career skills such as organizational leadership, criminal justice, fire science, communications, human resource management and more.

The Alabama Firefighters Museum, which will be established in Calera, Ala., will house an expansive collection of artifacts documenting the history of firefighting in Alabama while “honoring past and present fire and rescue heroes and providing interactive fire prevention and life safety education."
