Life Safety House Trailers

*Requests for the Life Safety Trailers must be made by Fire Service personnel only.*

  • Requests must be made at least one month in advance of your event and not more than one year in advance.
  • Cancellations should be at least two days in advance.

The Life Safety House is a great tool for teaching many fire and life safety topics. There are eight trailers available throughout Utah. Each Life Safety House is equipped to teach:

  • Fire escape from a child’s bedroom with the use of smoke, smoke alarms, and a heated door
  • Kitchen fire prevention and safety with the use of a stove, pan, toaster, sink, microwave, and fire extinguisher
  • Injury prevention: including burns, poison, drowning, firearm safety, seat belt use, and helmet use
  • Fireplace safety
  • Match and lighter safety

A minimum of three (3) fire service members is suggested and a maximum of seven (8) students in each room is recommended. Houses are approximately 30 feet in length and need a nearby power source.

Caution must be used when young children or those with asthma are watching a demonstration using the non-toxic smoke and realistic smoke alarms.

It is the department’s responsibility to take clean and repair any damage caused to the trailers while under their use.

Earthquake Trailer

Our Earthquake Safety Trailer is a great education tool. The trailer simulates the intensity of an earthquake with vibrations and loud noises (nothing shakes or falls). The trailer can accommodate 8-12 people at a time and the presentations inside can be catered to the population present in the trailer. Only State Fire Marshal representatives are allowed to transport and present the Earthquake Trailer.

  • Only requests with completed Request Forms will be accepted.
  • Requests should be made at least one month in advance of your event and not more than one year in advance. 
  • Please understand that evening, night and weekend events are more difficult for our staff to accommodate.
  • Cancellations should be at least two days in advance.
  • At least two Fire Marshal representatives are required to present the trailer. Bookings depend on trailer AND staff availability.

During limited social interactions, like the COVID-19 crisis, the Earthquake trailer is not able to make presentations. However, a digital copy of the presentation is available here:
