NFPA Fire Prevention week is October 4-10 2020.
This year’s theme is “SERVE UP Fire Safety IN THE KITCHEN!”
Every year the Aboriginal Firefighters Association of Canada collaborates with communities to promote safety through our national Fire Safety Poster Campaign.
Full-time students from preschool to Grade 12 attending a Band or federally operated school are eligible to participate.
Packages are available for download on our website and are mailed out to every band office and to every band and federally operated school.
We have developed lesson plans that can be used by parents, teachers or fire department personnel to teach ways to prevent cooking fires. The two plans are aimed at those who are not cooking yet, and those who are cooking. The lessons are approximately 20 minutes in duration and provide a great basis for students to create artwork to enter the national Fire Safety Poster Campaign.
