Peer to Peer Home Safety Training

Girl@BoardPrevention 1st trainers have taught and coached hundreds of students in Rochester City Schools and Quad A for Kids to teach fire and home safety to their schoolmates while learning leadership and presentation skills. These trainings were underwritten by grants from FEMA, Marie C. and Joseph C. Wilson Foundation, and Rochester Area Community Foundation. Future training will be provided as funding becomes available.


“Other students are interested in joining the program, and wish they had a chance to be a part of the program next year.”

  “The student trainers were very well prepared and worked to get the students involved in what they were trying to teach… Each of my students in attendance learned something and they were able to share what they learned.  My students also really loved learning from their peers!”

 “Each of my students learned something – it could be something that will save a life and that, of course, is worth its weight in gold!”
