25th Annual Massachusetts Public Fire and Life Safety Education Conference
Overview of 25th Annual Massachusetts Public Fire and Life Safety Education Conference
This year we celebrate 25 years of public fire and life safety education and the 25th anniversary of the first S.A.F.E. conference. In 1995, a panel at the first conference asked, “Where do we go from here?” This year we are celebrating all the accomplishments of 25 years including:
- 245 fire departments receive S.A.F.E. and Senior SAFE grants,
- average child fire deaths have dropped 74%,
- hundreds of thousands of children know about fire safety,
- thousands of older adults are safer in their homes.
This year’s theme, A Quarter Century of Fire and Life Safety Education – Proven Success, Future Challenges, says it all. Turning 25 means we are wiser, but fire and life safety education must continue to move forward. This conference includes programs:
- for new fire and life safety educators,
- to challenge experienced educators,
- workshops that teach new ways to promote fire and life safety education.
The 2019 Fire and Life Safety Educator of the Year award will be presented on September 25th. Nominations for the award are due August 23.
