Free Fire Safety Pictograph Webinar
Fire Prevention & Safety - April 25, 2018
Fire Safety Pictographs - Images that Teach in Any Language
May 10, 2018, 2:00 - 3:00 p.m. EDT
Did you know that more than 30 million adults in the U.S. can't read, write, or do basic math above a third-grade level? Besides the
literacy barriers, many cities have a wide range of languages spoken in their communities. How do we effectively deliver fire safety messages to people in any
language and from diverse cultural backgrounds?
You are invited to join the seventh webinar in U.S. Fire Administration's (USFA)
Fire is Everyone's Fight Webinar Series. In this webinar,
we will showcase the latest additions to the USFA pictograph library at
https://www.usfa.fema.gov/prevention/outreach/media/pictographs/index.html. Each pictograph was developed to graphically convey key messages
such as testing your smoke alarm each month and practicing your home escape plan.
This webinar will also address the in-depth testing done to ensure the messages are understood and effective. Plus, we will highlight
how USFA's pictographs are already being used in the field by fire safety educators.
Attendance is limited so register for the webinar today!
