Teaching Students About Fire Safety

California Fire Prevention teams are teaching 4th and 5th grade students about fire safety as part of the 2019/2020 “MySafe:California” outreach program. Students, such as this group in Lake County, CA are taught about the risks of fire in the home, how to inspect their homes for working smoke alarms, how to safety escape a house fire, where to meet, and how to communicate with a 911 call taker. Students receive a free smoke alarm, and CalFire Prevention officers will visit and install smoke alarms for anyone that requests it (in addition to specific neighborhood canvassing operations). Working with multiple school districts, the goal of teaching thousands of students how to be safer relative to fire is a core objective of the non-profit, public benefit organization.
