Community Fire Safety Advocate Program

The Community Fire Safety Advocate (CFSA) program was developed to effectively meet the specific fire safety needs of Seattle’s immigrant and refugee communities. Initiated after a tragic fire in 2010, this program has expanded to provide fire prevention education and hands-only CPR across Seattle

The Community Fire Safety Advocates (CFSAs) are trained community members who provide cultural and linguistic relevant education and outreach to all Seattle communities.

The CFSAs participate in community outreach events and conduct fire safety presentations in English, Chinese, Khmer, Lao, Vietnamese, Thai, Spanish, Oromo, Somali, Amharic and Tigrinya.

Participants learn:

  • The real dangers of fire
  • The most common home fire and life safety hazards
  • How to respond properly to a home fire
  • Calling 911 for emergencies

Request a Community Fire Safety Advocate presentation or participation at a community event by calling (206) 291-7681 or fill out the online form for a community event or by sending an email to William Mace.

Virtual presentations are now available!
