Fire Safety House                                                                             

This 32-foot mobile classroom is available for schools, community groups and organizations throughout Mercer and Middlesex Counties. It is a fully self-contained unit, which includes a kitchen, living room and bedroom. It provides a realistic multi-hazard environment, which reinforces fire safety information and provides an opportunity for children to practice their fire safety skills. 

In a safe and structured environment, staff and volunteers of The American Red Cross of Central New Jersey are able to fill the Fire Safety House with non-toxic FDA-approved smoke which provides a realistic environment for children to practice lifesaving techniques for escaping a burning building.

Why provide children with fire safety training? 

  • Fire kills more Americans than all natural disasters combined.  

  • Fire is the disaster that children are most likely to experience.

  • Children often hide during fires rather than escape.

  • Each year about 300 people are killed and $280 million in property is destroyed in fires attributed to children playing with fire.
