You're never too young to start learning about fire and electrical safety. ESFI, the leading authority on electrical safety, has a firm commitment to electrical safety education. For Fire Prevention Week, our electrical safety messages are combined with age-appropriate fire safety information.
With funds provided by multiple Fire Prevention and Safety grants from the Federal Emergency Management Agency, ESFI had developed a robust library of fire and electrical safety programs. All resources have been developed in accordance with the National Science Education standards.
These resources, featuring ESFI's quirky mascot, Private I. Plug, provide everything you need to teach kids critical electrical and fire safety messages during Fire Prevention Week.
Kids' Corner - The interactive Kids' Corner is a self-contained safety learning website just for kids! It includes all of Private I. Plug's safety videos and also a variety of fun video games that reinforce critical fire and electrical safety lessons. The Kids' Corner is also available in Spanish.
Investigate With P.I. Plug: It’s Electric! - This dynamic safety awareness program was developed to teach children in grades 3-5 about electrical and fire safety. The classroom toolkit, developed in accordance with National Science Education standards, includes a teaching poster, student worksheets, and a family take-home sheet.
