The California Fire Prevention Organization (CFPO) is a non-profit public benefit 501 (c) (3) corporation. The organization is focused on reducing injuries and fatalities as a result of fire throughout the State of California.
CFPO is focused on education and awareness, both for specific segments of the public and the fire service. By demonstrating a commitment to community risk reduction (CRR), not just as a phrase for PR, but as a functional process, a new series of fire education initiatives will be shared across the state.CFPO is managed by an experienced, highly trained board of directors, all from either the fire service or with higher education leadership expertise.
Combined, our team has collectively presented to more than 670,000 students during the past 33 years, primarly in southern California. Presentations and programs have been delivered to more than 250,000 students in the 4th and 5th grades by our experts in just the past four years.Our organization is unique in that we have expertise in multiple disciplines. By topic, note how our expertise is applied:
FIRE PREVENTION: retired assistant fire chief, retired fire captain, active battalion chief, active paramedic, and consulting active deputy fire chief make up our fire prevention group.
MEDIA: past network news director, university broadcast journalism professor, two-time Oscar award-winning film producer, experienced camera operator, PR director make up our film/media group.
Our team focuses on studying a community, identifying risks, and evaluating those risks. Then we develop and deploy risk-reduction programs that help people within that community be better prepared.
An experienced board of directors, combined with a highly trained Executive Officer manage MySafe:California. The management team includes fire officers, educators, and health experts. All officers donate their time.
Our programs take nationally recognized concepts in fire and life safety and localize them for better community engagement. We partner with fire departments and other agencies to ensure we’re sharing expertise, not duplicating it.
