The Museum operates a 2,000 square foot exhibit area in Gallery IV that is dedicated to the principles of safety in the home, with emphasis upon fire safety. 

The exhibit was designed with the assistance of the Phoenix Fire Department and is based on that department's award winning Urban Survival Program, which lays out education elements and goals in a wide variety of home safety subjects, from pool and firearms safety to basic fire safety behaviors.

The Safety Exhibit includes a set of bleachers able to seat fifty children, a large screen TV, a two room Safety House, a fire safety application area, and a play area where children can sit in a toy chief's buggy, climb a fire pole, dress up like firefighters, create arm patches, work a jigsaw puzzle, or examine a fire safety doll house for safety infractions.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the Fire Safety House, children identify good and bad safety practices in the house, operate a smoke alarm, and carry out a home escape plan which they prepared earlier in the program. 

They also practice stop drop and roll behavior, review 9-1-1 procedures, and designate a meeting place for their families. 

The Safety House can be toured by families or small groups with a self guide catalogue. 

School groups, workshops groups, and story hour groups are led through the exhibit by the Curator of Education or one of his staff members.
