This web site has been designed to teach you the importance of knowing and practicing fire safety and prevention. Safety & Prevention should be your top priority. Fire safety can take lots of work but it is worth it because it could save your life. If you do things that are a fire hazard, it is much more likely that you will have a fire. Uncontrolled fire is an enemy and can be very destructive. If you want to know how fire safe your home is, go take the Fire Quiz in the Games page.
When fires do start, someone has to put them out. That is what the firefighters do. Firefighters must be ready day and night to go out on a fire call. Fire Fighting is hard and dangerous work, but many men and women take that duty as their own. There are different kinds of firefighters who fight different fires. Some fight house fires and some fight wildfires. The ones who fight wildfires build fire breaks to try to make the fire burn itself out. To learn more about fire breaks, go to the Hot Shots page. Some wildfire firefighters fight fires near civilization and some fight fires in very remote areas. Firefighters working near civilization get some help from high-tech machinery like bulldozers.
Another section of this web site is called Fire Science. It teaches about the way that fire works, what fire needs to work, how heat moves around, what smoke is, what a flashover is and many others things. It is a very interesting section to read. If you like science you will like the science section of this web site. Check out Fire Science
