Hosted this great organization at one of our California Fire Museum and Safety Learning Center events, while they were here in California with Molley the Fire Safety Dog, who performed her fire prevention effort very well, at our event!
I have known Dayna and the work she and her precious Dalmatians have done for many, many years. She has been a member of the fire service for a long time and is very aware of the needless tragedy of children who are burned or die in home fires. She knows how important it is for children to know what to do. So teaching them how to be more safe has always been a priority, and a calling for her. Equally important, she has always included her talented Dalmatian who helps to reinforce the skills being taught. Before she created her nonprofit foundation, she would look for ways to enable her to reach more children with this life saving knowledge. In the beginning she visited schools and other gatherings where she could teach children fire safety. Eventually she wrote and published a book for children about fire safety. And then, another book, etc., always looking for ways to help her reach more children.
She knows the importance of being involved in fire safety education from both vantage points, directly teaching children and also helping to create educational materials for the fire service to use so they can appropriately teach fire safety. She has served on professional committee's that have a direct national impact in creating appropriate educational materials for the fire service to use. Along the way she has been awarded grants and funding from companies to help her with the cost of her work. But as time went by she would realize the need for more support to increase her ability to reach more children, and eventually she created her nonprofit foundation. Not only could she teach fire safety to children across America, but she can literally reach children around the world with this valuable education through skyping! She has always been very creative in finding new ways to make a positive impact on our children, and the foundation helps her in her efforts. Always with her precious and talented Dalmatian (Molly) by her side who adds so much to her educational efforts.
I have had the pleasure of knowing Dayna professionally for many years. We both work in the area of fire prevention and safety education for those who are at a higher risk of injuries and death in a home fire. Over the years we have worked together on various projects. I have served on the Board of Directors of her foundation for several years. During that time I served as President of the Board for a year. We both are dog lovers. Her very talented fire safety Dalmatians have always had a special place in my heart and do a wonderful job of helping her teach valuable life saving skills to children. As a result she has been made aware of several instances when the knowledge she taught to a child directly impacted the safety of them and their family when there was a fire.
The Keep Kids Fire Safe Foundation’s mission to share fire safety messages with kids to help them protect themselves in case they come across of Fire. Their fun activities make it less scary for kids and make learning what to do fun.
I have been a funder of KKFSF for the past 7 years. The work the foundation does to educate children, and adults, on fire safety is engaging, highly relevant, and has led to lives saved. While small, the organization is dedicated to, and focused on creating outcomes that matter and delivering on their promises. One of the primary reasons for this is the passion of the founder, Dayna Hilton, for the mission. If you want to support a small organization doing great work, then I highly recommend KKFSF.
We have been supporters of Molly, Boden and Dayna's for the last 3 years.
We have been very impressed by all of the hard work Dayna and Molly do to educate and help keep kids safe around the world concerning fire saftey.
We keep donating to Keep Kids Fire Safe Foundation every year and when ever we have spare funds.
We love supporting their very important and special effort to keep KKFSF helping with the education of kids around the world.
We also love supporting Molly with her health condition by donating funds to help Molly receive her special diet and supplements to keep Molly healthy to continue her very special work.
We absolutely love Molly, Boden and Dayna and are so thankful for all of their fantastic endeavours and adventures into all of our local communities to provide very needed awareness and to save children and their families in times of crisis.
I love Molly, Dayna and Boden from Keep Kids Fire Safe Foundation. I first met them on Molly The Fire Safety Dog Facebook page some years ago, as I love dalmatian dogs.
Molly is a wonderful fire service dog. Boden is in training as a fire service dog and Dayna is their trainer. They all work very hard to keep children and their families safe, by educating them from Keep Kids Fire Safe Foundation. Molly is also an Ambassador for the upcoming IMAX movie "Superpower Dogs" being shown in 2019.
I absolutely love and fully support all of their work and fire safety knowledge they present to children and their families, whilst running face to face and skype classes to many communities, all over the USA and many countries all around the world.
Using skype and face to face teaching enables all of these children and their families to learn about fire safety. which helps them to know what to do in a fire emergency situation.
Please make donations to Keep Kids Fire Safe Foundation, which will help Molly, Boden and Dayna continue to teach children and their families all about fire safety knowledge and help keep all children safe all over the world.
Review from Guidestar
This charity is amazing because of the Executive Director and beautiful, intelligent dogs who have helped Dayna Hilton over the years. Dana and her current dog, Molly, teach children fire safety and literally save lives. Young children are so excited and enthralled with Molly and the special things she can do, such as crawling low to escape fire, testing fire alarms and creating escape plans so families are prepared, in case of fire. Dayna and Molly Skype their fire safety program with children all over the world.
This Foundation is amazing! Children are immediately engaged when they meet Molly the Fire Safety Dog. They listen to every word taught about fire safety, smoke alarms, escape plans and after Molly demonstrates many fire safety tips, the children go home and teach their families what they've learned! Most of the families then complete and practice and escape plan, which is imperative to saving lives, in the event of a fire. Molly and her human, Dayna, have taught children all over the world, via Skype and personal visits to classrooms.
Review from Guidestar
I have supported this non-profit for many years. I admire the work of Dayna and her dogs to educate children (and adults) about fire-safety. They work tirelessly Skyping with children around the world and doing in-person (or in-dog :) ) visits to share the fire safety message. I had the pleasure of meeting Dayna and Molly in Arkansas and then again in Raleigh, where they did their fire safety presentation for families as part of their ambassador tour for the Superpower Dogs movie. What a great job they do! This is a very special organization.
A small non-profit with a huge impact. The Keep Kids Fire Safe Foundation uses a Dalmatian mascot to help spread the word about fire safety to kids (and even adults). Dayna and Molly Skype with kids around the world spreading their message. They save lives. In addition to their Skype sessions, they share fire safety tips with personal appearances. It has been a pleasure to support this wonderful non-profit.

This is a small non-profit where every dollar essentially goes into the stated mission - to educate kids about fire safety. Dayna, the founder, is incredibly passionate and devotes all of her energy to the organization's work and mission.

My Dalmatian, Molly the Fire Safety Dog, and I, donate thousands of hours each year to the Keep Kids Fire Safe Foundation, so we can help keep the foundation keep children and their families safe.
Traveling all over the US and Skyping KKFSF's fire safety program with children from all over the world, we love teaching fire safety and helping reduce fire related deaths and injuries.
Molly love children and shows them how to crawl low under smoke, "test" a smoke alarm and can help turn the pages when we read a children's fire safety book.
Molly also loves to share fire safety on her Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/mollythefiresafetydog
