2012 FPW

Welcome public educators! 

NFPA appreciates your commitment to fire safety education in the classroom. In this section you will find tools for a successful FPW, including: fast facts, safety tips, lesson plans and more!

  • Teachers, firefighters and parents can download the lyrics (PDF, 25 KB) and remixed version (mp3) of an NFPA classic, “Two Ways Out,” for FPW lessons and fun for children of all ages.  
  • Get parents involved to help make sure your students are safe at home with a family checklist (PDF, 5 MB). You can even assign the checklist for homework.
  • Have your class pledge (PDF, 3.2 MB) to practice a home escape plan twice a year and have two ways out of every room.
  • Help protect families from wildfire. Visit the educator's section of the Firewise website for teaching materials and interactive tools for youth audiences.
