The Texas State Fire Marshal's Office has adopted the National Fire Protection Association's Learn Not to Burn fire safety 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:
- Texas Prekindergarten Guidelines (ages 3-5)
- Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills for Kindergarten
- Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills for 1st grade
- Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills for 2nd grade
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.
We continue to offer Fire Safety for Texans, a series of fire and burn prevention curriculum guides (K-12). They aren't aligned with the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills standards.
