Planning fire safety interventions for older adults

The Fire-Safe Seniors Program helps you plan and implement fire safety interventions for the high-risk group of older adults. It can be used by organizations that serve seniors at the national, state or community level, such as fire departments, meal delivery programs, home companion groups, senior center associations, and many other groups.

Teaching preschoolers about fire safety

More than half of child fire deaths are among children age four or younger—making them an important audience for fire prevention and education. If you’ve ever visited a preschool classroom to discuss fire safety, or have met with older toddlers during community outreach activities, you know they can be a tough crowd to reach.

That’s why USFA collaborated with Sesame Workshop to create the Sesame Street® Fire Safety Program for preschool kids.
