Lessons That Save Lives

Across the country, a home fire starts every 87 seconds. That’s why for 70+ years, we’ve been dedicated to teaching kids how to prevent fires and what to do if they face one. Over 111 million have been deputized through our Junior Fire Marshal Program – and we’re just getting started.

Smarter Resources for Safer Communities

“Without the Junior Fire Marshal program, fire calls would be increased in some of our most vulnerable neighborhoods, compromising life safety.”
– Fire Chief Reginald Freeman, City of Hartford, CT
“I love being a teacher. If you can impact one student’s life, that’s incredible.”
– Barbara Fisher, First Grade Teacher, Seiberling Community Learning Center, Akron, OH
