"Learn Not To Burn" fire safety program for children

The Texas State Fire Marshal's Office has adopted the National Fire Protection Association's Learn Not to Burn fire safey programs for grades Pre-K to 2.

National Fire Protection Association's (NFPA) Learn Not to Burn series uses positive, practical fire safety messages that take into account children's unique physical, social, and emotional development.

NFPA has extensive experience in curriculum development. With access to certified classroom teachers on staff and in the field, they have been able to convene a team seasoned in the important components of curriculum development – planning, developing, implementing and evaluating.

All Learn Not To Burn programs can be downloaded for free from the National Fire Protection Association's website.

Each age/grade level has been aligned to Texas educational standards,

TakeAction (Teens for Wildfire Safe Communities) is a campaign that provides resources and projects that benefit young adults, their families and neighbors. You can learn to prepare your pets and horses – and yourself!

Throughout the U.S. more than 8 million students in grades 6-12 live in a community with wildfire risks. If you're in that age group, you’ll be glad to know there’s a lot you can do to make the place where you live safer! TakeAction has not been aligned to Texas educational standards but is suitable for a class community service project.


The Texas State Fire Marshal's Office continues to offer Fire Safety for Texans, a series of fire and burn prevention curriculum guides (K-12) developed by the State Fire Marshal's Office. They are, however, not currently aligned with the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills standards.
