The original SURVIVE ALIVE / Fire Safety Site*

PFA’s Fire Prevention Site of the Month for May 2000 AND The Fire Safety Site of the Year for 2000

“The Survive Alive Village contains outstanding content and graphics. While this is no “small budget” undertaking, it demonstrates how public and private sectors can work together toward the common goal of reducing household fires, saving property and protecting lives through fire safety education. If your municipality has not considered requesting educational funding from private businesses such as alarm companies or installers of residential sprinkler systems, now is a good time to get started.”

This site originally was developed for the Survive Alive Program of the Indianapolis Fire Department and funded by Allstate Insurance, Northbrook IL. It is geared to children in the second and third grades. The site features a multitude of learning tools for children including interactive games, coloring book pages and quizzes. We utilized ColdFusion as the “back end” engine to drive the administration portion of the site where we could maintain an intricate reporting system as well as create automated emails, etc. Quicktime was used to create the 360° virtual tours of the actual physical Survive Alive structure.
