Fire safety story for families
I Know My Fire Safety Plan is a short story that breaks down the important points into easy-to-follow steps. You can practice your fire safety plan with your children. Then read this story with them.
For high-risk populations
Some people in your community may be at a higher risk to home fires. Groups such as older adults, people with disabilities, newcomers to your community, and individuals with limited English proficiency have specific needs related to fire prevention. Home fire escape planning and related fire safety advice specifically for high-risk groups can help keep all community members safe.
NFPA's Fire Safety for People with Disabilities Task Force member Gary Olsen uses American Sign Language in this presentation about the importance of making a home fire drill plan. This video also contains open captioning and a voice over translation of the sign language.
