Billy Brushwacker is Arizona's youth curriculum to educate children
ages 8-11 about Firewise principles. Fire education programs have been instrumental in inspiring generations of children to prevent fire and to become more safety conscious. Making our homes safer from the threat of wildfire is an important new fire safety message that requires nothing less than a change in attitude and behavior. The Billy Brushwacker program is designed to meet Arizona Department of Education Standards so it can be used by the teacher as part of the required curriculum for science. Also available from Arizona Firewise Communities are workbooks that the students can take home and involve their parents in Firewise concepts, and a video game which is a fun way to reinforce the material.
