Fire Safe House

The Fire Safe House teaches students what to do if a smoke detector is going off in their home, and while we won’t be coming to the schools with the Safe House there is still a good way for students to learn about fire safety.

The Boise Fire Department resources and videos on this page offers a suggested format for teachers and parents to follow. Use the “Smoke Detector Safety Tips” to make sure your home is ready for an unplanned fire. Then, have your youth conduct an in-home safety inspection as a Jr. Fire Marshal using the “Fire Safety” document. Further education of your Jr. Fire Marshal can be provided in the additional Student Resources.


The Fire Safe House is a mobile unit which travels to sites such as public schools, kid's fairs, parades and other public events. Fire Prevention members visit second grade children at Boise elementary schools every year starting in March. During the visits, Fire Prevention Captains are available to answer questions.

Children are educated about fire safety by watching a video, followed by hands-on teaching about smoke inhalation and smoke alarms. Other topics discussed are the dangers of matches and lighters and how to escape if a fire starts in the home.
