Our Students Are Serious About Fire Safety

Jacob is ten. He’s a fourth grade student at an LAUSD Elementary School. He’s just earned his MySafe:LA Junior Fire Inspector ID card. Jacob is pumped up. “I love what I have learned,” he says. “I want to have a safe home, and my uncle who takes care of me likes what I tell him about fire safety.” 

Jacob is like thousands of other kids in Los Angeles who have gone through the MySafe:LA Junior Fire Inspector program. Designed for 4th and 5th grade students, the program offers young people the chance to inspect their homes for fire dangers, to receive a FREE smoke alarm if required, and to practice fire safety with parents and/or guardians. 

The overall objective and goal for the Junior Fire Inspector program is to not only teach kids about fire safety in the home – but to make them fire safety ambassadors – to take the key things they learn in our classes home to the entire family. It’s a program that has worked well for the past 14 years, and is the reason MySafe:LA was founded. To date, we’ve taught more than half a million students. Many of them are in college now. We can’t wait to report back on our progress in another five or ten years.
