Fire Station Open House or Community Exhibit
Free materials: NFPA’s “Ideas for an Open House
” materials gives great ideas on creating learning stations that speak to all age groups. You'll want to make sure your open house activities reinforce this year's Fire Prevention Week theme and provide useful information on how to prevent and survive a home fire. Most likely, kids and parents will be visiting your open house, so messages and activities should be primarily tailored to these age groups.
Children’s Sports Events
NFPA’s sparkyschoolhouse.org has everything you need for a successful visit to preschool and elementary level classrooms. Choose one of our free apps or e-book to use in the classroom along with our lessons plans and music videos which motivate kids to get moving and have fun while learning important fire safety messages.
Spending the afternoon at the local athletic field is a great way to connect with families in the community. Kids and parents alike will be thrilled to see local firefighters on-site to share fire-safety information. An effective display can include a banner and a table with educational materials. Include activities to fire safety lessons or simply help attract a crowd to your display.
