Fire Safety Prevention, Safety Training and Awareness
The Department of Developmental Services (DDS) was awarded a grant by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for Fire Prevention, Safety Training and Awareness.  In cooperation with the Connecticut Fire Academy and University of Connecticut Health Center, the department produced two training videos, one for public and private sector employees and the other for individuals and families.
The videos are also available through local libraries, fire departments and regional offices of Connecticut Emergency Management and Homeland Security.
