MySafe:LA teaches fourth and fifth grade students about fire safety, and empowers them to become the fire prevention spokesperson for their families.
Since 2008, we’ve taught hundreds of thousands of Los Angeles area students about fire safety, including providing free smoke alarms to those who request them
During our three part (on separate days) Juninor Fire Inspector training program, we teach kids about home fire safety, what hazards to look for, and the importance of working smoke alarms.
Kids learn to “Get Low and Go,” what to say to a 911 emergency call taker, and the importance of including pets in every fire safety plan.
The objective of the training program is not only to educate each student, but to have them take those messages home and in turn, to make everyone better prepared to survive a home fire.
Kids love fire engines – and firefighters. As a reward for successfully completing the program, our newly minted Junior Fire Inspectors get to meet their local firefighters. The LAFD is a strong supporter and partner in our educational process, and (time permitting), they love to join us for our Junior Fire Inspector graduation events.
