FIRE SAFE KIDS

What is Fire Safe Kids?

 

Fire Safe Kids is CFA’s flagship education program for primary and pre-primary students. It’s delivered by volunteer or career firefighters who visit your school with an engaging and interactive presentation.

Each lesson is supported by comprehensive guides and lesson plans for teachers, and plenty of giveaways for students.

What will my students learn?

 

Primary

Teachers can select from a range of free presentations (each

targeted to a particular year level) to help their students become

fire smart from the start. Fire Safe Kids lessons cover a range of

topics, such as:

  • How to identify 'hot spots' or fire hazards around the home

  • How to help your family develop a home fire escape plan

  • Basic actions for extinguishing clothing fires and treating burn injuries

  • The science behind fire according to the fire triangle

  • How families and communities get ready for the bushfire season

Each presentation requires one school period and is designed for one class group (about 25-30 students).

Pre-primary

Activities at the pre-primary level aim to help children:

  • Understand the need to get out, find a safe place and call for help if there is a fire

  • Be familiar with firefighters and their role in the community
