In the field of fire safety the improvement of automatic fire detecting, extinguishing, and control equipment has progressed to a high level while there has been a decided lag in the area involving people. There exists a pressing need for the creation of a constant awareness of fire safety at all levels and for individual and group training. In other words, increased emphasis must be placed on promotion and education. This brochure has been prepared to assist Federal agencies in planning a year-around fire safety promotion program. The suggested activities have been tried by various organizations throughout the country and have generally proved successful. Fires are traceable either directly or indirectly to people and every fire, no matter how small, has a devastating potential. Therefore, fire safety programs need to be geared towards the elimination of fires with more emphasis on education and training of employees.
