Describes the CARES Safety Center, a 40-foot safety education vehicle. Designed as a house-on-wheels, the vehicle contains fun, interactive exhibits and low-cost safety products. Traveling throughout Baltimore City, the mobile safety center has provided more than 6,000 visitors with life-saving information about injury risks in the home and how to prevent them. The CARES Safety Center, which was officially unveiled in July 2004, resembles a typical home--with a kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and stairway--to illustrate potential hazards and preventive measures. Safety educators from the Bloomberg School of Public Health and the Baltimore City Fire Department use interactive exhibits in each of the rooms to teach parents and their children how to prevent burns, falls, strangulation, poisoning and other unintended injuries. The vehicle is also equipped with an inventory of safety products, such as car safety seats, bicycle helmets, safety gates and cabinet locks, which are offered for sale at below-retail costs

Our incident command system needs help by Michael S Kernan( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Baltimore City Fire Department is experiencing problems with the incident command system currently being used. This project sought to discover the reasons why the existing system is not working and to recommend changes to improve the system. The system, based on the Fireground Command System developed by Chief Alan Brunacini, has been in place for many years, but is underutilized and sometimes ignored. The research indicated several major contributing factors to the ineffectiveness of the system. The initial introduction of the fireground command system was not accompanied by any training. The department's members were not prepared for the changes, and some were not convinced of the need for the system. Three years ago, a brief introductory course on the National Fire Academy's ICS was given to the chiefs and captains in suppression in anticipation of a conversion to that system

The role of adult education in preventing fire fatalities by Shawn C Belton( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The purpose of this research was to determine and explore ways that adult education can help reduce the amount of fire fatalities.

Big changes ahead for the Baltimore City Fire Department by Michael S Kernan( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Baltimore City Fire Department was about to undergo major changes. The City of Baltimore 800 megahertz (MHZ) system was due to come on line in approximately 7 months. Though the project began as a quest for a new radio system, it eventually involved numerous additional technologies which would be introduced into the fire department including computers in stations and vehicles, Automatic Vehicle Locator, etc. These changes and the subsequent operational changes required would impact on nearly every member of this very traditional department. Using an evaluative research method, the author sought to gauge existing conditions, favorable and unfavorable, which could influence the transition process and to suggest ways to ease the transition
