USFA Fire Prevention and Safety Campaigns

In partnership with other Federal agencies, the fire and emergency response community, the media and safety interest groups, USFA develops and delivers fire prevention and safety education programs to reduce the loss of life from fire-related hazards, particularly among the very young and older adults.

The campaigns below encourage Americans to practice fire safety and to protect themselves and their families from the dangers of fire. In addition, they provide dedicated support to public fire educators and the media to facilitate community outreach to targeted audiences.

USFA welcomes feedback about these campaigns from individuals, members of the Fire Service, and journalists. Please send us your comments and questions.
