“We know how challenging it can be to keep children and adults interested in fire safety training. That’s one of the many reasons why we’re excited for the new Beat the Blaze game as we hope that it will keep the user engaged while still providing lifesaving fire safety education.”
Cheshire, Connecticut (PRWEB) October 10, 2017
HAI Group, a national provider of innovative solutions tailored for the public and affordable housing industry, is proud to announce their first ever fire safety learning game, Beat the Blaze, just in time for Fire Prevention Week!
HTVN, HAI Group’s e-Learning Solution, and the internal Risk Control and Consulting Team partnered on Beat the Blaze with the goal of increasing fire safety awareness for HAI Group’s member housing agencies. Housing professionals and residents can challenge themselves to learn more about fire safety by answering questions to escape the house; trying to beat the clock, avoid obstacles, and out-score friends. The learning experience is fun and competitive at the same time; the more you play, the more you learn.
“After a fire breaks out, on average a person has two minutes to get out of their home,” said HAI Group’s Director of Learning Solutions Kristina Gumbulevich. “We wanted to get the word out to help protect residents and their homes by offering a fun and engaging fire prevention video game. The learning game offers three levels so people of all ages can play, learn, and share!”
The National Fire Protection Association is observing Fire Prevention Week from Sunday, October 8 to Saturday, October 14, 2017. This year’s Fire Prevention Week theme, “Every Second Counts: Plan 2 Ways Out!” works to better educate the public about the critical importance of developing a home escape plan and practicing it. Beat the Blaze is a perfect way to bring awareness to this year’s theme. As gamers play Beat the Blaze, their knowledge is tested on smoke alarm maintenance, fire safety plans, common causes of home fires, and much more!
“We know how challenging it can be to keep children and adults interested in fire safety training,” said HAI Group’s Director of Risk Control and Consulting Elizabeth Owens. “That’s one of the many reasons why we’re excited for the new Beat the Blaze game as we hope that it will keep the user engaged while still providing lifesaving fire safety education.”
