Safety Education in the Schools

The Valley Regional Fire Authority believes that the power of knowledge is key in preventing fires and injuries. We begin teaching fire safety messages to preschool-age children and build upon that knowledge as children enter their elementary school years. VRFA staff members provide safety education to pre-school children from over 30 facilities each year and also teach safety in the classrooms of over 3,000 elementary age school children. Pictured above is one of our kindergarten fire safety visits.
