Every year Saanich fire fighters visit elementary schools and teach children how to be fire smart. Our Learn Not to Burn program teaches students important fire safety messages to help them in a fire emergency, including:
- Smoke Alarms are Important
- Get Outside, Stay Outside
- Report an Emergency
- Stay Away from Hot Things
- Crawl Low Through Smoke
- Know When to Stop, Drop and Roll
Students receive a home escape plan to complete with their family and a certificate congratulating them on completing the program.
Our Learn Not to Burn program is a favourite of many children. Since 2002, we have delivered the program to over 1,200 classes and more than 30,000 students.
