Thanks to this program and the support of local fire departments, there was not a single fire-related death of a child in 2020. Senior SAFE was created more recently and educates seniors on fire prevention, home safety and what do to in case of a fire. Seniors are the most vulnerable population to fire-related deaths, and the program has shown great strides in preventing these tragedies.
