FirePrevented.org is a program of EdQuest,
“ Do not hide from firefighters.”
Teaching kids how firefighters look and sound with air masks saves lives.
“ Working smoke alarms in your home double the chance of surviving fire. ”
“ Children mistakenly believe that they can control the fires that they set. Once
a fire is set, it only takes about two-
minutes for the flame from a single
match to set an entire room on fire, and less than five minutes for that fire to overtake an entire house. ”
Never Hide from Fire
One (1) of every thirteen (13) residents in our community is under age 5, that is over 7%,
an age range not served by our local fire department prevention education program.
1 in 7 doesn't speak English at home, while over 8% are 65+ and 10.3% were born outside the country. (2010 US Census)
Over 40% of juvenile firesetters are under age 5. Firesetting is the largest cause of home deaths among children where almost 34% of the victims of child-set fires are the children themselves.
40% of set fires are by Children

We can never forget...no matter how heroic the fire actions of our firefighters, or their selfless risk or the professionalism of their craft, that every fire is a failure of prevention.
We must work tirelessly,
We must work selflessly,
We work without recognition,
We work without reward,
When we have succeeded,
no one knows,
no one shakes your hand,
no one acknowledges the life saved.
We work to Prevent.
if children know to get out right away when smoke alarms sound and go to their family meeting place, the one place outside where everyone should meet.
