Fire Safety Personnel
Dear First Responders,
Fire and burn injuries to children account for nearly 200 emergency room visits each day. As firefighters, you are local heroes in your community and hold a unique position of influence. I encourage you to take advantage of the opportunity to educate children, parents and caregivers about fire prevention during Fire Prevention Week, Oct. 6-12, 2013 and all year long.
We are offering the fire and rescue community free educational materials to take to schools or community events and to use at fire stations. These activity sheets and teaching tips can be downloaded below.
I hope these tools will help you teach life-saving lessons about fire prevention to North Carolina children during Fire Prevention Week and any time you have the opportunity. Please encourage members of your community to participate in the statewide fire drill with their family on Oct. 9.
Thank you for your service.
Thanks for stopping by our page, but the online ordering period is now closed.
