In an effort to increase the tools available to local fire departments, the Department of Fire Services has created ten video fire safety public service announcements (PSAs). Fire departments are welcome to download the PSAs and use them in presentations, on their own websites, or to ask their own local cable access stations to air them. They have permission to customize them with your logo. The topics covered include:

• Smoke alarms

• CO alarms

• Home escape plans

• Cooking safety

• Match & lighter safety

• Home heating safety

• Space heater safety

• Electrical safety

• Dryer fire prevention

• Candle safety 

You can find them on the DFS YouTube channel www.youtube.com/DFSOSFM and click on the Fire Safety PSA playlist, or you may find them on individual DFS webpages by topic. We are indebted to the staff of the Mansfield Cable Access Television which produced them for us. If you need assistance with these PSAs, please contact Jennifer Mieth, Public Information Officer at This email address is being protected from spambots.
