The Public Education Advisory Group is comprised of members of the fire service and serves to provide guidance on the development and execution of UL FSRI programs and campaigns to educate the general public about fire safety and awareness of preventative measures that can help save lives. They provide the invaluable perspective of firefighters, both from what they’ve learned on the job and while conducting their own fire safety education and training activities.
With the modern fire environment allowing fire to spread much quicker than years ago, it's more important than ever for the fire service community to get this important message out. After all, an educated community is a safer community.
