The Milwaukee Fire Education Center’s Survive Alive House is located at 2059 S. 20th Street. The House opened its doors in 1992, and each year over 13,000 Milwaukee children visit it to learn how to survive in the event of an actual home fire.
The Survive Alive House is designed to teach 2nd and 5th grade students fire safety and prevention techniques. The house holds 66 students at a time, with a minimum size group of 20 students. Students visit the Survive Alive House for a fire prevention program that lasts approximately 90 minutes. The Survive Alive House is open for two sessions, 9:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m., Monday – Friday, for private and public schools located in the City of Milwaukee. Community-based, youth-serving organizations also utilize the facility.
