The New Zealand Fire Service offers a range of fire-safety education resources for early childhood, kōhanga reo, primary and year 7 and 8 students:
Get Out! Stay Out! for early childhood
E Puta! E Noho ki Waho! for kōhanga reo
Get Firewise for year 1 and 2
Māui-tinei-ahi for year 1 and 2 (Māori-medium education)
Be Firewise for year 7 and 8
The education resources are designed to be delivered by teachers and kaiako. They can be supported by firefighters with a school visit and fire-safety presentation.
Please give us your feedback and ideas about the programme and how this website could help you use the resources effectively.
