Fire Prevention

Fire Safety Personnel

Dear First Responders,

Fire and burn injuries to children account for nearly 200 emergency room visits each day. As firefighters, you are local heroes in your community and hold a unique position of influence. I encourage you to take advantage of the opportunity to educate children, parents and caregivers about the importance of smoke alarm location during Fire Prevention Week, Oct. 8-14 and all year long.

I hope the tools on this website will help you teach life-saving lessons about fire prevention to North Carolina children during Fire Prevention Week and any time you have the opportunity.

Thank you for your service and for your selfless efforts in protecting your community.
