There are dozens of ways you can use Fire Is Everyone’s Fight™ to help teach people in your city or town to be safer. Our community outreach guide shares just a few ideas to help you get started, offering suggestions for engaging people in the community.
In adddition to the guide, we offer of range of free outreach materials that include:
USFA recognizes the power of partnership as a critical means of marketing and delivering accurate and consistent safety messages into the community. Fire is Everyone’s Fight is based on social marketing research commissioned by the grassroots Vision 20/20 fire safety consortium with funding from an Assistance to Firefighters Grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency. USFA is asking partners to use the Fire Is Everyone’s Fight™ tagline with existing or new materials. Based on partner resources, they may implement a number of strategies, such as sharing information with staff, member organizations, community groups and other stakeholders.
By leveraging Fire Is Everyone’s Fight™ resources, supporting dissemination or advertising efforts and encouraging state and local chapters to join in the initiative, the fire safety community can present a consistent, repetitive message that helps diverse members of our society take action to reduce their risk of fire. This includes support for public service announcement (PSA) placements, educational outreach to community organizations, local media relations activities and other activities.
Fire Is Everyone’s Fight™ is a national effort led by the U.S. Fire Administration. The fire safety and prevention network will grow as momentum builds with the support of many different organizations, communities and the public at large. This network will use a wide range of fire safety and prevention resources to communicate the importance of taking action to protect ourselves and the people we love from fire.
