The fire prevention message is having an impact in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Public safety spokesman Greg Buelow says that from 1964 to 1973, the city averaged 4.4 fire deaths a year. Now the average is less than one a year.

“We’re trying to educate people and look at that prevention arm of it instead of just responding,” says Buelow, who participated in the pilot evaluation of NFPA’s Remembering When™ program in five Iowa communities. En 2015 the Fire Protection Research Foundation partnered with the University of Iowa Injury Prevention Center to evaluate the fire and fall prevention program for older adults.

Much of the outreach efforts in Cedar Rapids are focused on two demographics–school-age children and older adults. The city’s successes in fire prevention are described in detail in an article in firehouse.com.
