October is National Fire Safety Month and an excellent time to review fire safety both in workplace and at home.  In a fire, seconds count.  Seconds can mean the difference between escaping safely from a fire or having lives end in tragedy.  This year’s Fire Prevention Week theme is “Every second counts, plan 2 ways out!”.

This presentation will discuss what you need to do to protect your workplace from fires and keep employees safe.  As the head of his city’s Fire Prevention Office, he will address various aspects of fire safety in the workplace from what is required to what are good practices.  He will also address fire safety in the home along with a discussion about smoke detectors and which ones are the most effective in their application.

Wayne Johnson has been with the Shaker Heights Fire Department for close to 31 years and currently holds the position of Assistant Chief – Fire Prevention.  He attended the National Fire Academy and received the designation of Executive Fire Officer.  He graduated from Cleveland State University with a BA Degree in field of study - Public Safety Management and graduated from Akron University with an Associates of Science Degree in the field of study – Fire Protection Technology.
