BOSTON – Governor Charles Baker, Secretary of Public Safety and Security Daniel Bennett, State Fire Marshal Peter Ostroskey and Revere’s state delegation are pleased to announce that the grant funds for Student Awareness of Fire Education (S.A.F.E.) and Senior SAFE Programs have been awarded for FY2018. The Revere Fire Department has been awarded $6,700 for the S.A.F.E Program and $3,000 for the Senior Safe Program.
Twenty-three years ago, the S.A.F.E. Program was created. Since that time, average annual child fire deaths have been reduced by 72%. More recently, a similar fire safety education program was created to offer funds to local communities in support of senior fire-prevention training because seniors are the most vulnerable of populations at risk of fire-related deaths. Senior SAFE is aimed at educating seniors on fire prevention, general home safety and how to be better prepared in the event of a fire.
