Why Teach Fire Safety

Did you know in 2020 home fires caused 2,580 deaths and fire departments responded to 356,500 home fires in the United States?

Teaching your students how to prevent fires and how to respond properly in a fire situation are skills your students will remember and practice throughout their lives.
