Every year, many firefighters die while performing their sworn duties. Technological changes, construction methods and materials, and everyday items used at home, school, and work continue to make firefighting a dangerous occupation.

Finally, students will have the opportunity to conduct fire inspections around their school, then discuss their findings with their classmates.
