Training Firefighters as Fire Prevention Social Entrepreneurs


Thousands of people die in preventable house fires every year. Look to the new way of saving lives through the FireED Community!

There is no denying the passion firefighters have for saving lives and property. But fire department budget cuts make public education a rarity for many communities. Staffing shortages and limited access to quality resources, are all issues that could be the underlying reason behind the “fire problem.” FireED training firefighters as fire prevention social entrepreneurs, is a solution to seriously consider, before more people die!

There are millions of social changemakers doing good all over the world but the potential for vastly restoring community life safety begins with the combination of civilian social entrepreneur mentors for firefighters. Whether on my podcast The Voices Of Social Change, through my work with startup social entrepreneurs, or consulting with social ventures, I’ve seen firsthand what it means to be on the front lines of social change. Firefighters CAN make a WORLD of difference.

Most firefighters struggle with the fact of fires killing thousands of people every year, and harming children by the millions…

….And fires are PREVENTABLE, making this is the identifiable societal issue that FireED is taking a stand for. It’s time we begin to unravel why it is so important for community to take a HUGE leap of faith and public safety agencies embrace the meaning behind the FireED Community’s social change mission. That is to bring social change and social entrepreneurship into the way we teach people of all ages how NOT to become victims of fire.
