English as Additional Language

CFA's revised Fired Up English is a fire safety resource for English as Additional Language (EAL) students. It is intended to be used by EAL teachers to support adult learning about fire safety and English.

There are 12 lessons altogether with resources for both 0-1 level English students and 2-4 level English students. CFA presenters or brigade members may be available to support some lesson content throughout the program.

The lessons do not need to be delivered in order, nor does every lesson need to be delivered. Each lesson plan includes a range of activities that complement the session topic and it is up to the teacher (or CFA presenter) to choose an activity that best suits the level of English and interests of each class.
