Survive Alive House

Survive Alive House

The Survive Alive House is a cooperative effort between the Milwaukee Fire Department and Milwaukee Recreation. All Milwaukee Public Schools students in second and fifth grades attend the Survive Alive House to learn fire safety and fire exit skills.

At the Survive Alive House, firefighters teach young people critical fire safety skills in a classroom setting before moving to the interactive portion of the lesson, where participants are given practical experiences in a simulated burning building. Participants learn how to stay beneath the smoke, feel the door for warmth, call for help, and meet at the designated meeting point.

Over 405,000 children have experienced the fire safety program since its inception in 1992. As a result, Milwaukee’s fire-related fatalities among school-aged children have decreased dramatically.

The Foundation for the Milwaukee Fire Education Center has funded several technological upgrades to the Survive Alive House in both the classroom and the “street scene.” These improvements continue to assist the instructors with their presentations and enhance the impact this program has on students.

To find out how your Milwaukee second- or fifth-grade class can attend, call us at 414-385-3240.
