Fire and Life Safety Program Planning

Fire and Life Safety Program Planning inspires and encourages communities to develop fire and life safety programs that support safer, more resilient communities. This program guides participants to gain a better understanding of their community risks and gather resources and ideas or find applicable training programs to address the identified risks.

Your community does not need to have a fire department to run a successful Fire and Life Safety Program. Planning for fire and life safety is a community effort and can be championed by schoolteachers, community leaders, community members, and first responders.
