Special collection: Fire Prevention and Public Education Exchange

The Fire Prevention and Public Education Exchange serves as a centralized location for national, state and local fire prevention and life safety practices and public education materials that organizations may wish to share with other communities. The materials that are available here should serve to provoke and inspire new ideas and at the same time offer fire safety practitioners immediate access to proven, effective tools that can be put to use in their own communities right away.
