Fire Safety for Kids
You can keep your community safer when you teach kids how to react to fire. Our youth programs reach 1,000s of students each year! Last year, we taught 25,000+ students in our Fire-Safe Kids presentations.
Working with youth and their families to understand the serious consequences of firesetting. The program consists of a formal assessment, which identifies the child's risk level, and then provides education intervention or referral to additional services.

Free Smoke Alarms for Seniors
Did you know that seniors are the most vulnerable population, when it comes to perishing in a home fire? That’s why we’re passionate about our Fire-Safe Seniors program, which installs free smoke alarms for the elderly in our community.
Know an elder who needs a smoke alarm?
Fire Safety in the Workplace
Teach your employees – new and old – how to properly use a fire extinguisher. The Burn Institute will visit your workplace to run this emergency preparedness class.
Besides keeping your staff safe, you’re also supporting our programs, like Camp Beyond the Scars, with the $275 price per 30-person class (prices increase for larger groups).
How We Help Our Community
I feel more at ease knowing my 94-year-old mother has a working smoke alarm in her home. As a senior living alone, I can feel confident knowing these alarms will alert her to danger."
Daughter of Participant
I think our students needed to hear that information. I don't think they had been taught this before. They remembered the information because we had a guest firefighter come in the next day and they told him all about stop, drop and roll, back of the hand to the door, and to get out 2 ways."
My husband and I did not have any working fire alarms or carbon monoxide detectors. We are grateful for those who made it possible for us to have these important safety features in our home now. The installers were very kind. Thank you for your generous help."
Many of our students do not have family structures that prepare them for fire safety. For some of them, this is the only information they have gotten."
