The Educator’s Award is a peer award presented to an outstanding individual, organization, or program that is making a difference in Fire and Life Safety Education.

Bianca has been employed with the City of North Charleston Fire Department since September 2007. She works daily in our local schools, daycares, and businesses to teach fire and life safety to all citizens of North Charleston.

Bianca is dedicated to preventing fires and saving lives through education and safety, teaching citizens to prevent home fires, to use fire extinguishers, and what to do in emergency situations. Bianca also assists with the After the Fire Program that aids individuals after a fire has occurred in their home and during recovery. She also serves as a liaison for residents and the American Red Cross and other support systems. 

Bianca is an active member of the Fire and Life Safety Education Association, South Carolina Fire Marshals Association, South Carolina Firemen’s Association, and Palmetto Alliance of Public Affairs and Information Officers.

North Charleston Fire Chief Greg Bulanow said, “Bianca’s passion and creativity make her very effective in delivering fire and life safety education. She is very deserving of this recognition from her fellow fire safety professionals.”

  1. Having a home fire extinguisher in your house for those emergencies can save lives and property. If a fire starts, grabbing your fire extinguisher can dramatically reduce damage to your home, stop the spread of the fire and may save lives.
