BeSafe Tool

The goal of any fire safety training is to create behavior change in our audience. We want them to be able to take steps to avoid an emergency and, if one does happen, know the correct action to take.

The Behavioral Evaluation and Safety Assessment for Fire Education Tool (BeSafe Tool) is a tool that can easily be used by the fire service and fire safety advocates to evaluate their existing programs’ effectiveness in creating behavioral change, or that could also be applied to any new programs they may create.


The IMPAC-Tool is a new, free, online resource to help you make your fire and burn safety messages more effective. It is undergoing beta testing as of this time and will be available in the very near future.
