So I was at a meeting with a large group of social services types and they want to start a new program where firefighters conduct home inspections if they determine there's a child present. Their reasoning was that a Government Service was requested which then opens the door for other "services" to be involved in the home. Regardless of the reason for the call they expect us to conduct a home "safety" inspection "for the children." Also, then we'd be expected to provide corrective actions, cribs, etc and to report our findings. "They" believe that the only way to reduce childhood fatalities is for government services to be more involved. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
