Clown Program

The Clown Trailer was donated by the North Modesto Kiwanis Club. The department uses the trailer to house props and gear for the Modesto Fire Department Clowns. The program is a long established one that visits elementary schools every year delivering the message of fire and home safety. The clown program, staged by an all-firefighter crew, performs at twenty-two schools a year in front of an estimated 10,000 students.

Behaviors and topics taught were:

  • Matches are Tools
  • E.D.I.T.H.
  • Smoke Detectors
  • Crawl Low Under Smoke
  • 9-1-1
  • Why we Ventilate a Fire
  • Seat Belt Safety
