MAFF PROVIDES FIRE SAFETY
MATERIALS THROUGHOUT THE STATE
The Michigan Association of Fire Fighters Learn Not To Burn Program (LNTB) has touched every county in the state of Michigan. MAFF has supplied over 1,120 LNTB programs - free of charge - to elementary schools, fire departments, and preschool administrators statewide.
Developed by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) the Learn Not To Burn Curriculum is based on NFPA's belief that fire safety information should be presented in a positive, non-threatening manner, teaching children how to make responsible choices regarding health and safety. NFPA data notes the LNTB program is used in more than 50,000 classrooms nationwide. The Michigan Association of Fire Fighters (MAFF) is a strong supporter of the Learn Not To Burn (LNTB) program and will continue it's commitment to help save lives by distributing the highly acclaimed Learn Not To Burn Program to fire departments, preschools, and elementary schools throughout the State of Michigan.
MAFF Offers two separate LNTB Programs:
Learn Not To Burn Preschool Program
The LNTB Preschool Program uses original songs, games, and activities to each basic fire and burn prevention behaviors to children ages 3-5. The lessons in the program are short and simple and encourage active participation. The program includes a teacher's guide featuring detailed lesson plans, fire safety background information, letters to parents and reproducible coloring sheets.
Learn Not To Burn Elementary School Program
MAFF introduces the New LNTB K-2 Program. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has introduced a new Kindergarten through Grade 2 Program to replace the LNTB Kindergarten through Grade 3 Program. MAFF has already started phasing the new curriculum into its LNTB Program.
As with the K-3 Curriculum, MAFF's newly introduced Learn Not To Burn (K-2) Program incorporates fire safety behaviors into regular school subjects allowing youngsters to absorb lifesaving information while developing skills in reading, math, art, history, and science. The activity-oriented projects help young children learn fire safety habits by practicing them.
In 2010, we have distributed teaching materials and important fire safety information to over 500 children.
We were pleased to disburse our information to preschoolers, kindergartners and first graders in our local areas such as Centerline and Troy.
We continue to encourage this program and accept requests throughout the year. Simply send a written request by mail, fax or email and we will contact you personally.
