Another great technology that helps firefighters improve child safety
The Milwaukee Fire Department (MFD) provides rescue services to a broad, diverse, urban region. The department’s mission goes beyond emergency response: MFD personnel lead a variety of initiatives, including fire safety programs and Project Staying Alive, an anger management program delivered in conjunction with Milwaukee Public Schools. With the help of TurningPoint® polling software from Turning Technologies, MFD has been able to increase student engagement and improve program results.
Project Staying Alive educates Milwaukee sixth graders on appropriate anger management techniques with an aim of reducing the incidence of injuries due to violence within the city. Patterned on a highly successful predecessor initiative, the program consists of several sessions that are delivered by MFD personnel with the students’ teachers. The program is funded by a Safe Schools / Healthy Students grant and is presented at no cost to the schools. Read more of this article by www.fireengineering.com here.
