Join us for the 25th Public Fire and Life Safety Education Conference: A Quarter Century of Fire & Life Safety Education: Proven Success, Future Challenges. The 25th anniversary of fire education in Massachusetts is a significant milestone. Since the Student Awareness of Fire Education (S.A.F.E.) began in 1995, average child fire deaths have declined by 76%. Fire safety education has been an important factor in that decline.

  • programs for new fire and life safety educators and fire prevention officers,
