Fire Safe Youth

CFA firefighter-led, classroom fire safety presentations.

CFA's Fire Safe Youth program sees local CFA firefighters visit your class to talk about bushfire and home fire safety. This is a free program available to secondary schools across Victoria.

What do students learn?

The range of topics include:

  • Victoria's bushfire history
  • How climate, weather, vegetation and topography affect fire behaviour
  • The science behind radiant heat and ember attack
  • Fire Danger Ratings and warnings: what they mean and how to respond
  • Total Fire Bans: what you can and can't do
  • Prepare, Act, Survive: what you can do to stay safe in summer
  • How to identify and address everyday fire hazards inside the home
  • How working smoke alarms and home fire escape plans save lives

Please allow one period for bushfire safety and one period for home fire safety. You'll also receive follow-up teaching and learning materials to support further study in the classroom.
