We can all help make the world a safer place by learning more about how and why fires start. We offer dozens of consumer-friendly fact sheets on a wide range of timely and important topics - everything you need to know to keep you, your family, and your neighbors safe from fire and related hazards.


Throughout the year, NFPA helps you and your community stay safe. Fire Prevention Week, the national campaign that we’ve officially sponsored since 1922, and a host of other outreach and advocacy programs are all designed to give you the tools and encouragement you need to promote public safety.


When it comes to spreading the word about fire safety, you don’t have to go it alone. Working in partnership, we can have a real impact on the fire problem. We’ve teamed up with like-minded organizations – and have a broad network of public education specialists – who are committed to helping you be successful.


If you’re a teacher or safety educator, you’ve come to the right place for high-quality, free resources: downloadable educational programs, lesson plans, tip sheets, videos, and more. Strategies are integrated throughout our programs to reach those at highest risk including young children, older adults, people in low-income communities, and people with disabilities.
