Proposed Project

State of Pennsylvania Fire and Life Safety Public Education Survey—New—Division of Unintentional Injury, National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

This project will involve conducting a statewide survey of Pennsylvania fire departments to identify current fire and life safety education programs, resources, and training needs. Survey findings will be used to develop an inventory of programs and resources, and to inform future training programs for fire and life safety educators in Pennsylvania. In the United States each year, there are approximately 400,000 residential fires, with 14,000 non-fatal and 3,000 fatal civilian injuries. In line with Healthy People 2010 objectives, National Center of Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC) works to reduce and eliminate non-fatal and fatal injuries from residential fires.

The survey will be conducted with fire departments in Pennsylvania. The 2007 National Directory of Fire Chiefs & EMS Administrators lists all fire departments in Pennsylvania along with their contact information. Fire departments will be asked to complete a 35-item survey either on-line or by returning a paper survey. It is expected that 1,000 fire departments will complete the 30 minute survey, which is designed to collect information on the scope and content of educational programs and activities, training needs, and barriers to fire and life safety education. An initial mailing (and e-mail if e-mail address exists) to the fire chief of each fire department will include a postcard describing the study and instructing them how to submit the survey. Fire departments that have not completed the survey and have not declined will be sent a reminder postcard and will receive a follow-up telephone call.

There are no costs to respondents except for their time to participate in the surveys.
