  • Santa Clara County FireSafe Council - Youth Education Programs

    Youth Education Programs

    By 6th grade, nearly 65% of students have played with matches and/or lighters. Our Youth Education Programs have a positive affect on a child's knowledge of fire safety, with educated students less likely to engage in fire play causing harm to themselves or others. In addition, we help young people build respect for forest life and understand the effects of wildfire on the environment.
