Curriculum Services Canada LogoCurriculum Services Canada (CSC) has given its seal of quality to the Fire Marshal's Public Fire Safety Council for the Canadian version and French translation of NFPA’s Learn Not to Burn® educational program for preschool, kindergarten, and level 1.

A not-for-profit organization that supports the needs of learners, CSC is Canada's standards agency for the accreditation of Canadian educational resources and also develops a wide spectrum of customized learning resources for academic and organizational environments. CSC works with government agencies, NGOs, and private organizations across Canada to develop and evaluate print, multimedia, and web-based resources that support learning.

Lntblevel1cover“Learn Not to Burn went through a stringent review by CSC,” says Art Pullan, NFPA’s Public Education Division field advisor for Canada. “Because of this endorsement, teachers and the school system will see the program as a credible Canadian resource.”

The program will be introduced to members of the fire service throughout Ontario who attend the September 16th Learn Not to Burn workshop in Toronto. The workshop is sponsored by the Fire Marshal’s Public Fire Safety Council in partnership with the Toronto Fire Service. In addition, educators across Canada will be encouraged to use this valuable resource.

NFPA is excited to announce the Fire Prevention Week (FPW) theme for 2015: “Hear the Beep Where You Sleep. Every Bedroom Needs a Working Smoke Alarm.”

Half of home fire deaths result from fires reported between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m. when most people are asleep. We need your help to spread the message about the importance of having working smoke alarms in every bedroom, outside each sleeping area, and on every level of the home, including the basement.

NFPA has everything you need for a successful campaign. Tools for the fire service, include step-by-step instructions for implementing an FPW campaign, sample news releases and social media posts, sample local and state proclamations, and free customizable safety tips sheets.

Materials for teachers include interactive lessons and activities, music and movement fire-safety videos, free storybook apps, and Common Core-aligned lesson plans, and take home materials.

For kids and families, the Sparky the Fire Dog® web site has tons of fun. Hidden pictures, fun printables and a new smoke alarm checklist to do with the family.
