Meet Milo & Moxie

What do Milo, a loveable dog, and Moxie, an inquisitive hummingbird know about teaching children how to prevent burn injuries and be fire safe in their homes? As it turns out, everything!

The Arizona Burn Foundation’s new kid-friendly program teaches children burn prevention education. Children under the age of 12 are the most vulnerable group for burn and scald injuries. Milo & Moxie: Smart Safety Rangers™ “story-time” curriculum addresses burn safety behaviors for both children and their parents.

Heart of the Program

At the heart of the program is the story of Milo, our Smart Safety Ranger dog, who teaches his friend, a curious hummingbird named Moxie, how to prevent burn injury and be fire safe in and around the home.

Milo & Moxie: Smart Safety Rangers™, is geared at educating preschool to fifth graders. Our messaging includes; stop, drop and roll, escape plans to get out safely, cautions on chemical burns, scalds, fire, sun safety and much more!

“By the time fall arrives, approximately 1,400 children in my community will have had the opportunity to meet Milo & Moxie. I absolutely love the bright and colorful way the messages are provided in the book, flash cards, and video. I use this curriculum for preschool, kindergarten and first grade safety presentations.”
