SCHOOL FIRE PROGRAMS

And a giant Smokey Bear Balloon

today & we
will see if we can help with your educational goals.
The goal of our Elementary School Programs is to consistently teach the basics of Firewise living to the next generation. We
do this through a variety of events, including the following ANNUAL PROGRAMS:
* Match Safety - Offered to first graders each
April at the start of wildfire season in Missoula County. This 30-minute program with video teaches the (3) Match Safety Rules and
how to stay fire-safe at home and in the forest. Features Smokey Bear and a few of your local firefighters.
* Firefighter Frank -
Offered each October to kindergartners. Puppet Show covers fire drills in the home, "stop, drop and roll," and how "stay low and crawl
out" in smoke. Features Smokey Bear and Sparky the Fire Dog mascots and a few of your local firefighters.
Each year, MCFPA
members present these programs to as many Missoula County schools as possible. Contact us about your school fire-safety program
today. Together we can live safe on this fire planet.
