HeroThe public education division is busy creating more materials for you to use in your community. Some of the resources you will find on nfpa.org include our educational programs. The Learn Not to Burn® Preschool Program, Learn Not to Burn® Grade 1 and Remembering When™: a fire and fall prevention program for older adults provide you with everything you need to implement a formal educational program. Our safety tips sheets have been so successful, we keep adding more. The community kits provide everything you need to do an outreach program including media materials, print ads, talking points and safety tips sheets. If you plan to reach people with disabilities, we have created resources for you to use. And, Sparky® the Fire Dog’s website is updated monthly with new fun things to do.

With all these great resources available, we hope you are using them. Has your use of the materials helped save a life in your community or family? Did a family practice their home fire drill and have to use it in an actual emergency situation? Did someone learn about fall prevention in a Remembering When presentation and have grab bars installed in their shower? Did someone install smoke alarms in their home because you provided them with our smoke alarm safety tips sheet? Did a game on Sparky’s website get your family to test their smoke alarms? We want to hear from you. Let us know how our materials made a difference. You can be a safety hero!
