SPOKANE, WASHINGTON STATE (USA) — A tool used for its Children’s Fire Safety Program was retired recently after being in service from 1993 until this year. The Children’s Fire Safety House (CFSH) aka trailer has toured area elementary schools teaching over 54,000 children about fire safety.
New funding has been received for the Department to purchase a new and more state-of-the-art “trailer”/Fire Safety home. This program will be able to continue with its current curriculum for kids and how they can learn about the important topic of fire safety.
This current home (retired) was sponsored by several Spokane Area Rotary Clubs, one of the area’s great community partner organizations.
Several mentions of possible interested parties in the retired tool (trailer) have been mentioned like The Isaac Foundation, Courageous Kids Climbing, Touch-A-Truck Days, or another non-profit or small Fire Department that will put it to good use in their own aligned programs.
Kids learn all sorts of great first-person and realistic training on:
- Smoke in your house.
- What to do if your clothes catch on fire (Stop, Drop, Cover, Roll)
- How to put out a kitchen grease fire.
- How to call 9-1-1 for help and what information to give to the dispatcher.

The list of items kids learn from the one-hour training presentation has left many to share these stories with their kids later in life and have given feedback on their great fire-safety training.
