The Fire Triangle

The Fire Triangle is one of the first lessons educators from California Fire Prevention Organization teach to our 4th and 5th grade students. Those kids go on to learn other important safety rules in our three-part, in-school, Junior Fire Inspector series. This is a terrific opportunity to teach your students several key points:

  • Fire needs three components to burn: heat, fuel, and oxygen
  • Remove any one of the three, and a fire dies

Family Escape Plan

In this short, educational film, The California Fire Prevention Organization walks you through the simple steps in creating a plan that will help any family survive an emergency or disaster. Key points to teach include:

  • The fire department will always show up
  • Before they do, every student can be a hero for their family – by making a family escape plan
  • Draw a map of your home
  • Pick two ways out of your apartment or house
  • Choose a family meeting place

  • That Benjamin Franklin invented the formal fire department in America
  • That pets are part of the family
  • That smoke alarms save lives
  • That “Get Low and Go!” Is an important thing to learn to avoid inhaling deadly smoke
