Learn Not to Burn® Preschool Program
Saskatchewan Fire Facts
Children under six years old are at high risk of suffering burn injuries, and they are twice as likely to die in a fire, compared to the general population.
The goal of Learn Not To Burn
To reduce child fire deaths and injuries by presenting the LEARN NOT TO BURN PROGRAM in child care homes and facilities across Saskatchewan.
About Learn Not To Burn
Learn Not to Burn is a comprehensive fire safety curriculum for use in schools.
These comprehensive fire safety curriculums are based on field-tested results of National Fire Protection Association's (NFPA) Learn Not To Burn program. The program includes three levels:
- Learn Not to Burn – Preschool presents five fire safety messages using classroom lessons, activities and home connections.
- Learn Not to Burn – Kindergarten presents six fire safety messages using classroom lessons, activities and home connections.
- Learn Not to Burn – Level 1 presents five fire safety messages using classroom lessons, activities and home connections.
Each level provides maximum flexibility so that it can be taught as a stand-alone fire safety unit or easily integrated into language arts lessons. Throughout the program, presented by teachers, invitations can be extended to the local fire department into the classroom to support the lessons.

The program is available in English electronically at no cost. Download the lesson plans and the songs from NFPA.
