About Us

The program has been designed to teach children from Prep to Grade 6 about basic home fire safety. The program is offered to all Tasmanian primary schools, and more than 95% of Tasmanian children participate in the program at least twice during their primary school education.

Lessons and resources are delivered in schools by specially trained firefighters of the Tasmania Fire Service.
