Evidence of Program's Success

In November, 2011, a second grade boy who had just received training from our Simply Safe Fire Safety Outreach, was able to get his family out of a smoke-filled apartment. He remembered to 'crawl low under smoke', got his little brother out and alerted his parents. The whole family survived. He was interviewed by Channel 9 News and said that he had learned the skills 'at school'.

Annual DFD reports indicate that fire-related injuries and fatalities have decreased significantly; this is due in large part to improved fire safety education in the Denver community and beyond.
