Public Education

The Shaker Pines Fire Department offers a variety of public education opportunities. Our goal is to educate our District residents to help them feel comfortable in and out of their homes.

First Aid & Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation
Did you know that it only takes 6 minutes from the time a person goes into Cardio-Pulmonary arrest that brain damage starts? Do you know what to do in a medical emergency? Do you have the training to help save a life? The Shaker Pines Fire Department is proud to offer this training to residents and businesses in the area. We can provide training for:
  • The mom and dad to be
  • The soccer or baseball coach
  • The local business looking to get their employees trained in these life savings skills
These programs are designed to give you the confidence to respond in an emergency situation with skills that can save a life. The Shaker Pines Fire Department offers initial and recertification classes for American Heart Association CPR with AED, Pediatric First Aid w/CPR, and HealthCare Provider CPR.

Juvenile Fire-Setter Intervention Program

Presently, there are 4 active members representing 4 of the 5 fire districts. The program averages 15 cases per year, with requests for information from another 10.

Program Target
The Enfield Juvenile Fire-Setter Intervention Program targets children up to 14 years of age who have been involved in “fireplay,” or fire-setting activity. Children are referred to the program from family members, schools, fire departments, juvenile review boards and other outside agencies. The children are required to work with a Juvenile Fire-Setter Interventionist for a total of 8 hours. During this time, both fire safety education and social skill-building exercises are covered.

The Enfield Juvenile Fire-Setter Intervention Program is sponsored by the Enfield Fire Marshal’s Association at no cost to the families of the children involved. For more information, please contact Lt Ken Maltese, Intervention Specialist at 860-749-8552 or by email.
