    The safest way to deal with fire is to prevent it.

      My father once told me of a trick question he used in a college class on forest fire control. If there was a fire coming from a certain direction and wind was coming from another, what was the best thing to do?

Fire departments across the U.S. provide NFSC fire safety educational materials and programs free of charge to the citizens of their community. If your local fire department doesn't currently provide our materials then please encourage them to visit and contact us to learn how they can partner with National Fire Safety Council.
