Hollie Cummings recently discovered the locations of all five Flat Firefighters in the Brentwood Fire and Rescue Department’s “Find Flat Firefighter Sam” contest. The flat firefighter signs were located at the Maryland Farms YMCA, Concord Road YMCA, Williamson Recreation Center, the Brentwood Library and the Municipal Center. For her efforts, Hollie and a friend received a ride on a Brentwood Fire and Rescue Department Fire Truck as well as lunch with the firefighters.
The Flat Firefighter program was rolled out early in February and features a large full color Brentwood firefighter in turnout gear holding informational signs. Each Flat Firefighter is used to promote safety messages and advertise community programs, with messages changed out on a regular basis. QR codes are included for smart phone users to investigate related websites or messages on the signs.
The Flat Firefighters are part of an ongoing effort to reach out to the community. This push includes QR codes on the fire engines, email campaigns, a regular Fire Chief’s Blog at http://www.brentwoodfirerescue.blogspot.com/, messages featured on Channel 19, online journals, as well as traditional media outlets. Many new and recurring programs are featured such as CPR Free February Fridays, Public Safety Day/ Open House in conjunction with fire safety week in October, The Citizen’s Fire Academy, and the Car Seat Inspection Program. For more information on these programs you can contact the Brentwood Fire and Rescue Department at www.brentwood-tn.org/fire or by phone at 371-0170.
