Interactive presentation Speak clearly, with appropriate volume and pacing Minimal text on slides Handouts with large, simple font Ask questions Use demonstrations, descriptions, and handouts General Presentation Tips:
Parts of the Presentation: Introduction As people assemble, hand out slips of paper and collect names for door prizes. Welcome your audience. Talk a little about yourself and your organization. Point out the fire exits and explain what the emergency alarm system sounds like. Briefly describe the purpose of the program.
Parts of the Presentation: Opening Activity & Discussion Use the Ice Breaker pre-test to get participants thinking about fall and fire prevention. Choose two of the activities described in the Presentation Outline. These activities will promote discussion about specific prevention behaviors. Write main ideas on an easel.
Example: Remembering When: Eating Together Opening Questions: What kinds of food did your mother, father, or grandparent cook for you? What was your favorite food? How did they cook it? Did your parent or grandparent every burn him/herself? How did they treat the burn? Discussion: What can you do to prevent burns and fires in the kitchen? Message: Stay in the Kitchen When Frying Food (Fire message #3)
What are some additional points for this safety message? Wear tight-fitting or short sleeves when cooking. If a pan or food catches fire, slide a lid over it and turn off the burner. Never leave cooking unattended. Use a timer when cooking. Use oven mitts to handle hot pans. Never cook when drowsy. If you burn yourself, use cool water for 3-5 minutes to cool the burn. Get medical help right away. HINTS!!
Example : Remembering When: Putting Your Feet First Opening Questions: When you were younger, what kinds of shoes did you wear when you were dressing up to go out? Did you have a hard time walking in them? What kind of shoes are you wearing today? Discussion: What are the safest kind of shoes to wear? Message: Wear sturdy, well fitting shoes. (Fall Message #8)
What are some additional points for this safety message? Wear sturdy, well-fitted, low- heeled shoes with non-slip soles. These are safer than high heels, thick-soled athletic shoes, slippers, or stocking feet.
Parts of the Presentation: 16 Key Messages The Fire & Fall Prevention Messages should be the main focus of the presentation. Involve the audience! Ask participants to demonstrate safe behaviors. Have a volunteer change a smoke alarm battery. Ask for 5 people to show off their safe-for-cooking outfits. Recruit audience members (or the entire audience!) to demonstrate the “Stand on One Foot” activity. Show how to put out a grease fire with a pan lid. Be Creative! Have Fun!
Parts of the Presentation: Trivia Game What are the benefits of playing a trivia game during your presentation? Participants will choose a category for the trivia question.
