Let's Focus on Fire Safety

Hoarding is not a new issue; but thanks to television shows like Hoarders, we now have the words to describe the condition.

The U.S. Fire Administration is focusing on hoarding in March. We have created a flyer you can use when you educate your community about its dangers.

The flyer is downloadable and customizable.

If you would like to read more about how fire departments around the world are dealing with this issue, check out this research from Australia:

It provides a clearinghouse of information on a variety of school safety problems and initiatives, including but not limited to acts of violence.
