Home Safety Literacy Project Kit
The Home Safety Literacy Project Kit was developed by the Home Safety Council in collaboration with ProLiteracy and Fire Protection Publications at Oklahoma State University. The materials have been evaluated by fire safety educators and adult education experts, and have been field tested for effectiveness in adult literacy, ESL, and adult basic education instruction.
The materials in the Home Safety Literacy Project Kit can be downloaded below and can be used and shared with attribution to the Home Safety Council (2006). Please do not modify the materials in any way.
