The Arizona Fire and Burn Educators Association is committed to assisting the communities of the State of Arizona in promoting fire and life safety education. In support of the mission, AFBEA does the following:
- Provides the public of all ages and abilities with the appropriate behaviors to prevent fire or life safety hazards.
- Effectively educates them in the skills necessary to protect themselves and others when confronted with a fire or life safety hazard.
Who we are
Arizona Fire and Burn Educators Association was formed in June 1987 as a 501.c(3) Non-Profit Corporation by a small group of dedicated professionals to assist those assigned to the educational duties of fire departments around the state of Arizona. These visionaries set goals to establish educational displays for events, standardization of training for and certification of Public Educators, topic-specific seminars to meet the needs of communities, and references to free or inexpensive resources.
Today, AFBEA supports the continuing education requirements of fire and life safety educators in Arizona and across the United States. Their dedication to providing an avenue to share innovative programs and earn certifications locally has been an important asset to the Southwest, especially when training and travel budgets have dwindled to nothing.
