Student Awareness of Fire Education Grant Program

The Student Awareness of Fire Education (S.A.F.E.) grant program provides resources for fire departments to teach fire safety education in schools.

The Student Awareness of Fire Education (S.A.F.E.) program provides grants to local fire departments to teach fire and life safety to children in schools. The program teaches students to recognize the dangers of fire and the fire hazards of tobacco products through 23 key fire safety behaviors taught in developmentally appropriate ways. Fire and life safety is easy to combine with math, science, language arts and health or physical education lessons, making it easy to collaborate with school teachers. Since the S.A.F.E. program began in 1996, child fire deaths have dropped significantly in Massachusetts.

Applications for the FY '21 grants applications are available and due Friday, November 27, 2020.

Senior SAFE Grant Program

Senior SAFE is a grant program for fire departments to teach fire safety to seniors. Seniors have a high risk of dying in a fire. Fire and burns risks for seniors include: cooking, smoking, home oxygen use, and electrical and heating dangers.

Senior SAFE also aims to improve safety in senior housing. Programs include:

  • smoke and carbon monoxide alarm installation
  • testing and replacing batteries
  • installation of house numbers
  • heating limiting devices on stoves
  • in-hood stove fire extinguishers
  • nightlights

Education is key to improving the safety of seniors at home. Senior SAFE creates partnerships between agencies that serve seniors and fire departments. Together, these agencies collaborate on local fire and life safety education programs.

Applications for the FY '21 grants applications are available and due Friday, November 27, 2020.
