Primary School resources

Fire Safe Books

These manuals are designed to assist teachers in preparing a fire safety program for primary school students. The resource manuals are intended to be ideas manuals, not an entire program in itself.

Ideally the units in these resources are used to complement other CFA programs such as Fire Safe Kids and the Mobile Education Unit by providing additional opportunities for children to learn more about fire safety.

The manual is organised into four broad concepts or areas of study:

  • Home Fire Safety
  • Personal Safety
  • Bushfire Safety
  • Fire Safety in the Community

Fire Safe Kids e-Learning Game

Captain Koala, 1st Lieutenant James and Fire Officer Sophie will take your students through a series of bushfire safety education, through a variety of interactive games and activities.

The three areas they will learn about are:

  1. Bushfire Awareness
  2. Bushfire Prevention
  3. Bushfire Planning

The students will learn about each topic. A scenario will be shown & the students will have the opportunity to use interactive tools to improve each scenario in order to become bushfire safe.  Questionnaires and worksheets are available to answer and print out for further classroom activities.

At the conclusion, they will be congratulated by CK with a special message for helping their family & community to be prepare for the bushfire season.
