Curriculum Services Canada (CSC) has given its seal of quality to the Fire Marshal’s Public Fire Safety Council for the Canadian version and French translation of NFPA’s Learn Not to Burn® educational program for preschool, kindergarten, and level 1.

A not-for-profit organization that supports the needs of learners, CSC is Canada’s standards agency for the accreditation of Canadian educational resources and also develops a wide spectrum of customized learning resources for academic and organizational environments. CSC works with government agencies, NGOs, and private organizations across Canada to develop and evaluate print, multimedia, and web-based resources that support learning.

“Learn Not to Burn went through a stringent review by CSC,” says Art Pullan, NFPA’s Public Education Division field advisor for Canada. “Because of this endorsement, teachers and the school system will see the program as a credible Canadian resource.”

The program will be introduced to members of the fire service throughout Ontario who attend the September 16th Learn Not to Burn workshop in Toronto. The workshop is sponsored by the Fire Marshal’s Public Fire Safety Council in partnership with the Toronto Fire Service. In addition, educators across Canada will be encouraged to use this valuable resource.
