~ Learn Not To Burn ~

Pre-School Program

NFPA created the Learn Not to Burn® Preschool Program in 1991 to address the high risks children under the age of five face in regards to fatal home fires. The updated program integrates literacy, movement, music, and dramatic play to provide a developmentally appropriate learning experience for preschool-aged children.

Five lessons tap into varied learning styles to reinforce the safety concepts for young children. The behaviors and strategies addressed in the revised program are guided by research related to fire and life safety messaging and young children including the use of positively-framed messages, opportunities for active engagement and encouragement of family involvement.

Kindergarten Program

The NFPA has created programs to help teachers reach their students with important fire prevention lessons.

Learn Not to Burn® (LNTB) Kindergarten presents six fire-safety messages using classroom lesson, activities and home connections. It can be taught as a stand-alone fire safety unit or easily integrated in language arts core curriculum lessons. Fire District 7 would love to be invited to your classroom to teach a lesson to support the fire-safety messages within the curriculum. Learn Not To Burn is an easy to use flexible guide for teachers to respond to the needs of the classroom. Make time for fire safety in your classroom.
