CalFire Prevention officers with a family in Santa Cruz, California

Fire Safety Canvassing in Santa Cruz

The California Fire Prevention Organization canvasses in neighborhoods throughout the State of California, providing fire safety education and installing FREE smoke alarms into at-risk homes. More than 40% of all lower income homes in the State have either non-functional smoke alarms or none at all.

Working in partnership with the Santa Cruz Fire Department, CalFire Prevention teams canvassed a neighborhood installing smoke alarms and teaching families to escape a structure fire together, to bring their pets with them, and how to communicate with a 911 call taker.
