The importance of educating and protecting children from the dangers and trauma that can be caused by fire, especially fires in and around the home, is widely recognised. Accordingly, Fire & Rescue NSW's firefighters have been visiting local preschools and teaching fire safety to children through the Pre ED program for many years.
Target age group
Children are a key at-risk group because of their young age and inexperience with the dangers of fire.
To address this risk, the Pre ED program targets preschool aged children throughout NSW.
What does Pre ED involve?
Pre ED targets preschool students throughout NSW and we focus on teaching children about:
- Safe fires/Unsafe fires
- Firefighters Can Help You
- Crawl Low in Smoke
- Stop, Drop, Cover and Roll
- Know and carry out their evacuation procedure
The program requires firefighters, preschool teachers and parents to all take a role in this program.
