Fire Safety for Public Education

Welcome to the public education resource section. This section is intended to provide resources, materials and links to other fire prevention and education organizations.



Getting to Know Fire Presentations:

Fire Safety Grade K-3

  • “Getting to Know Fire” Power Points - Kindergarden – Grade 3

  • Fire Safety PowerPoint Grade K-3

    Using the NFPA’s “Getting to Know Fire” curriculum, Power Points have been developed to use for presentations in schools. The first is for K-3 (can also be used for Pre-school). It is approximately 30 minutes and includes an 11 minute video and a 5 minute video and song. There are activities and song lyrics to use but both are optional. Kids love them because they are current, exciting and they get the kids INVOLVED!

Fire Safety Grade 4-8

  • “Getting to Know Fire” Power Points – Grade 4 – Grade 8
  • Fire Safety PowerPoint Grade 4-8

    The second Power Point is for Grades 5-8. This is also about 30 minutes with handouts to use but they are optional. Fire Departments can set up a time to visit one class or request an assembly and involve more kids. The Power Points can be used by anyone.

    Timings for the  presentations can vary depending on questions from the students.

  • “Getting to Know Fire” Power Points - Adults
  • Fire Safety PowerPoint Adult

    Similar to the Kindergarden to Grade 8 “Getting to Know Fire” curriculum, Power Points have also been developed for adult audiences.

    These Power Points include activities such as:

    • fire survival timeline
    • escape route
    • burns
    • fire extinguishers
    • placement of smoke alarms

    Depending on time, the Power Point alone is about 30 minutes and simple to use. Fire & Life Safety Educators can present to a group of 5 or 50 and do one, none, or all of the activities. This presentation is great to be used at a community meeting, an information night or any other situation where the Fire Department feels individuals would benefit.
