QuakeSmart:California!

You’re at the Heart of What We Do

We teach fire and life safety to kids throughout Southern California. We visit hundreds of schools in California each year. Our programs are designed to be educational – and FUN!

And You Get to Hang Out With Firefighters

We offer lots of information and cool swag (prizes) when we visit schools. Sometimes, we create special drills that you and your classmates can participate in. We create earthquake drills where you and your classmates practice earthquake readiness with LA firefighters. You get to “drop, cover, and hold on,” and then firefighters will “rescue” you and your classmates. Fun? It is – and you’ll be better prepared for the next big earthquake as well.

Sometimes, we’ll bring a special guest to a school visit. Our Safety Ambassador is basketball star Pau Gasol. He likes kids as much as we do. When he comes to a school with us, everyone has a fantastic time!

So, check out some of the information we offer for kids – and let your parents and teachers know that you want California Fire Prevention Organization to come to your school!
