Programs
Prevention First

Fireproof Children Company has received a grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency to provide training in fire safety education to Head Start programs in states with high rates of fire-related deaths and injuries for children.

With the goal of extending the reach of fire safety education to young children and families, Fireproof Children Company has developed Prevention First, Fire Safety Education Program for Pre-school Children and Families. Prevention First, a train the trainer workshop, will be presented free of charge to Head Start program managers. The workshop addresses effective methods of teaching fire prevention and safety to preschool children based on research on children's risk-taking behavior. The hands-on learning activities are based on language arts skills, including story-building for cognitive skills, classification and naming skills, pattern recognition and visual memory skills, and vocabulary building. Teachers will also learn easy ways to partner with local fire service to reinforce fire prevention in their communities.

The framework for the training is the award-winning preschool program play safe! be safe!, developed by Fireproof Children and others for BIC Corporation, and currently used in more than 50,000 classrooms in the U.S. and Canada. Prevention First includes family activities to bring home specific safety messages, including the importance of practicing home exit drills, having a working smoke detector, and keeping matches and lighters out of children's reach.
