Fire Safety House
The Fire Safety House at Blank Children's Hospital is a FREE education program designed to teach children important aspects of fire safety. The house offers hands-on learning to prepare children for the unexpected and frightening experience of a fire. In addition to teaching children about fire safety, the house can also be used to train children about what to do in severe weather such as thunderstorms and tornadoes.
Statewide, the Fire Safety House has made a large impact in Iowa since its start in 1994. The Fire Safety House has educated more than 64,000 children and 10,000 adults, and has visited more than 63 counties, spreading the knowledge about fire safety.
