NFPA and Safe Kids Worldwide announce partnership to further promote fire and life safety

title

By Susan McKelvey

NFPA and NFPA and Safe Kids Worldwide are officially teaming up to promote fire safety through the Safe Kids Worldwide network. This partnership presents a great opportunity for NFPA to expand its fire safety education outreach through Safe Kids Worldwide’s local coalitions – many of which include fire departments – and have an established track record for effectively communicating safety messages to children and families. In addition, a Safe Kids Worldwide representative will begin serving on NFPA’s Educational Messages Advisory Committee (EMAC).

To kick off the partnership, NFPA and Safe Kids Worldwide are working together to promote Fire Prevention Week.

We strongly encourage fire departments and fire safety educators to join forces with their local Safe Kids Worldwide coalition when and where possible. It’s a great way to make new connections with others doing similar work in your community, and who are likely eager to support your fire safety outreach efforts.

We’ll make sure to keep you posted on events and programs we’re jointly supporting in the months ahead. To learn more about how you can work in coordination with a local Safe Kids Worldwide coalition, contact Judy Comoletti, NFPA’s divisional manager for public education, at jcomoletti@nfpa.org.
