Importance of Fire Prevention

Home » Resources » Fire Prevention

On numerous occasions, our Granite Insurance team has witnessed the devastating effect a home fire brings to a family and even their community.  As a result, back in the early 1960’s we chose to become actively involved in fire prevention.  We’ve learned one of the best ways to teach fire safety is to begin at an early age and work with elementary school children.

Each year we work cooperatively with the fire departments and schools to provide fire safety education materials to children.  This includes providing a novelty red fire hat as an incentive for the children’s work in learning fire safety.  It is another way in which we can help the communities we serve be successful.
