[ARCHIVED] TVF&R Hosts Training Workshop for Landlords

Landlord Training 7.16.13.jpg

Over 75 landlords attended TVF&R's June Landlord Fire & Life Safety Training workshop. Attendees were informed about how quickly fire spreads, common fire causes, the inspection process, fire department operations, and the restoration process after a fire.

For over a decade now, TVF&R has been working collaboratively with landlords and at-risk tenants to create a safer community through education. "Our research shows that landlords have a pivotal role in keeping tenants and their properties safer from fire, and it is our hope that this unique training will give them the confidence and tools they need to create safer living environments," states Karen Eubanks, Public Affairs Chief. In addition to the Landlord Fire & Life Safety Training workshops, the District offers bi-lingual posters for laundry facilities and common areas, pictorial sheets, and a tabletop display highlighting the importance of smoke alarms for new tenant orientation. The research and materials produced for this program were underwritten by federal grants awarded to TVF&R, totaling almost $200,000. In 2006, TVF&R received the prestigious International Association of Fire Chiefs' Fire Service Award for Excellence for its work with landlords. This award recognizes a fire department's innovations and achievements in managing resources to reduce the loss of life and property from fire and other emergencies.

To date, over 1,000 landlords have attended a TVF&R training workshop.
