Safety Squirt’s Safety Place is a new tool for educating kids and adults about fire safety in the home. The system uses the latest in wireless touch screen and Internet technology to allow educators to easily work with students in a full classroom setting or one-on-one. The heart of the program is an animated, interactive, virtual house that can be controlled with a wireless internet capable device such as a phone or tablet. The house can be used as an interactive presentation tool where the educator speaks to the class or can play the pre-recorded safety sequences. The sequences are hosted by the program’s mascot, Safety Squirt, whose wizened and folksy personality is brought to life by famous Texas actor, Barry Corbin.
Safety Squirt’s Safety Place is developed by the Dallas Fire Museum, members of the Dallas Fire Department education team and the media systems group at Brainfood. Proceeds from the program fund the Fire Museum and the continued development of the program.
