In time for Fire Prevention Week 2015, Fire Safety Canada, in conjunction with the Council of Canadian Fire Chiefs and Fire Commissioners, just released the first Canadian edition of NFPA’s Learn Not to Burn® (LNTB) program.

Teachers, educators, and parents across Canada can benefit from free access to the made-for-Canada edition of LNTB, to complement community Fire Prevention Week initiatives, October 4-10. Teachers have been invited to download free lessons and parents are encouraged to support the effort at home by using the online family fire safety activities. The online activities and in-class lessons are in step with this year’s Fire Prevention Week theme: Hear the Beep Where You Sleep: Every Bedroom Needs a Working Smoke Alarm.

On the web site and in the classroom, children learn how to recognize the smoke alarm beep, what to do when it sounds, the fundamentals of a home fire escape plan, and to stay away from hot things.

Learn Not to Burn has served as the pillar of NFPA educational programs for more than 40 years and uses proven educational strategies that incorporate NFPA’s philosophy of teaching positive, practical fire safety messaging.
