Chicago Fire Department shares fire safety program with community

Children learn fire safety through the Survive Alive House

Chicago (June 20, 2006) – Saint Xavier University’s S.T.A.R. Learning Academy invites the community to participate in the Chicago Fire Department’s fire safety program from 10 a.m. to noon on Tuesday, July 25, in Lot 1 at the University’s Chicago campus, located at 3700 W. 103rd St.  

Members of the community are encouraged to experience the Survive Alive House, an interactive and instructional facility. It simulates a house fire using special effects like non-toxic, artificial smoke, heat panels in bedroom doors and a street corner meeting place. Statistics show that since 1989, children who have participated in the Survive Alive House have contributed to a dramatic drop in fire-related deaths. 

The event is free and open to the public. For more information, please contact Saint Xavier University’s S.T.A.R. Learning Academy at (773) 298-3485 or visit www.survivealivehouse.com.
