The Education and Heritage branch develop education programs and resources about fire and natural hazards for school-aged children in Western Australia (WA).
All programs are linked to the Australian Curriculum. Primarily, our programs and resources focus on hazard awareness and safety messages with strong links to Humanities and Social Sciences, Health and Physical Education and Science.
We offer free excursions for primary school students (Pre-Primary – Year 6) and develop resources for emergency services to provide school incursions to year 3 students. Education and Heritage also supports the DFES Community Safety branch in the development, delivery and evaluation of programs and resources for regional schools.
Classroom resources can be found on this website. These resources are added to and updated regularly.
