  • Use extra caution in the kitchen this Thanksgiving: three (3) times as many fires occur on Thanksgiving as on a typical day. Visit the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) blog for more information.
  • The U.S. Fire Administration and Sesame Workshop have released a new version of the Sesame Street Fire Safety Program for preschool children. The curriculum includes an educator's guide for teachers, a CD of songs and stories, a family guide, a coloring and activity booklet, and a poster. Download or order your free copy here.
  • Each year nearly 2,500 people die in a U.S. home fire and over 13,000 people's lives are forever changed by home fire injuries. The U.S. Fire Administration has brochures, checklists, posters, handouts and social media materials for caregivers of babies and toddlers, smokers and older adults. Remember Fire is Everyone's Fight
