Community Fire Safety Advocates

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 CPR across Seattle, including communities who speak languages other than English at home.

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 conduct fire safety presentations in English, Chinese, Cambodian, Lao, Vietnamese, Thai, Spanish, Oromo, Somali, Amharic and Tigrinya.

Attendees 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

Hands only CPR education is also available. 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.
