The fire department offers CPR and First Aid Classes each month at the fire station. The students pay $25/person for CPR and $35/person for CPR/First Aid. We attempt to schedule at least 6 persons per class to offset the costs for staff and materials. Group classes can be performed on an individual basis. FF/P Chris Wulfeck heads up this valuable program.
For more information on CPR Classes, call the fire department at 859-441-8393 or e-mail Chris at email@example.com.
All Scheduled classes are held in the Fire Department Training Room.
The fire department assisted the Army Reserve 478 Engineering Battalion with their family day. We wanted the day to be educational but fun. Tug -O-War challenges for the kids and adults were a huge success. The kids performed the team relay race in firefighter gear and provided much amusement. The final event for the kids was to use a fire stream to knock a softball off of a cone. Everyone enjoyed the day.
The Campbell County Safety House is a full size mobile trailer used to give hands on training to students and adults on home safety and escape. The students initially tour the trailer and are given instructions on various safety messages in an environment familiar to the students. The instruction is hands on and very interactive. While the spaces are small the rooms are realistic and furnished as they would be in a home. Lessons include safety in the kitchen around the stove, microwave cooking, kitchen appliance safety, fireplace, safe candle
practices, the sound of alarm and means of escape. The highlight of this tool is the ability to fill the area with simulated smoke and have the occupants practice crawl low to an exit and escape as we have discussed. This provides the ultimate in learning experience. This equipment owned by the Campbell County Firefighters Educational Association trained approximately 500 persons in Fort Thomas in 2009. The CCFEA provides all maintenance and insurance for this mobile training aid. All departments are asked to do is fuel the truck and clean the house on return. This is an excellent cooperative project among all fire departments and the Campbell County Fiscal Court.
The department provides fire extinguisher training on request. Shown is a class at the Army Reserve 478 Engineering Battalion. The fire prop is a propane powered simulator with safety shut offs in the event of any problems with students or equipment.
