THE NATIONAL GASOLINE SAFETY PROJECT
Data is scarce, but it is estimated that 1,500 children are injured or killed in gasoline fires each year. For survivors, the consequences of gas burns can be severe and lifelong. The goal of the National Gasoline Safety Project is to stop gas fires in every community. Our campaign is reaching out to parents because they are their children’s first line of defense. Parents buy gasoline, choose where and how to store it at home, and teach their children how to handle gasoline – both through what they say and what they do.
The National Gasoline Safety Project is sponsored by the Portable Fuel Manufacturers Association in partnership with Shriners Hospitals for Children® and Safe Kids USA.
