Preschool Safety Program

A NEW Fire Safety for Young Children program is now available virtually!  

We are currently offering a 45 minute LIVE, ONLINE, and INTERACTIVE fire safety program geared specifically for young children, ages 3 to 6 years old.
This program includes an imaginative and adventurous storytime to reinforce important fire safety lessons. 

During this interactive program, young children will learn about:

  • Fire safety - recognize the difference between good fires and bad fires
  • Matches and lighters safety - tools for adults, not toys for children
  • Smoke alarms - what to do when you hear the beep, crawl low, and go outside

Students will also watch a firefighter put on gear to learn what firefighters look and sound like when wearing their protective clothing and breathing apparatus. We will also have time for questions and answers too!

Contact Community Education Services to schedule this program 408.378.4010 or Request a Preschool Safety Program
