Fire Safety Training

The Office of Mental Health in conjunction with The Office for People with Developmental Disabilities and the New York State Office of Fire Prevention and Control developed this training program to be used by our agencies operating supervised community residence programs.  However, with some minor adjustments this training packet would be useful to all staff providing a variety of residential services.

There are two primary training components:

  • Fire safety videos (4)
  • Fire safety booklets (5)

The videos and booklets can be downloaded from this site or they can be ordered through Utica Press. Also, there are two training posters designed to be displayed in our community residences. Posters can also be ordered from Utica Press.

We encourage you to use this material as a core for training staff. The use of this material is not mandatory and can be modified as needed.
