    Slovenian firefighting organization is based on voluntary membership. The task of voluntary fire fighter's organization (brigade) is not only active participation in firefighting and rescuing events but also in non- formal education of children and youth about the burning and extinction (putting out the fire). Fire fighters do not only help and rescue people during natural disasters. They also bring people together. The purpose of my diploma thesis was to compare the existing Science and technology course books in the fifth grade and determine if there are differences between them. I have also wanted to determine whether the presence of children in volunteer fire fighter’s organization and completed course have impact of the knowledge of the burning and extinction. Learning content of burning and extinction is taught in fifth class at subject Science and technology. I have gained the date of children’s knowledge through the examination which was taken by 55 pupils in three different primary schools in Dolenjska region. Four different course books were used for the comparative analysis. The analysis showed the analysed general date from course books and also data of the number of pages on which we can find educational content, texts and image material. There are no significant deviations among course books. The course book Raziskujem in ustvarjam 5, published by Mladinska knjiga, has the largest selection of text and image materials. Beside the comparative analysis, a survey on student’s knowledge about burning and extinction was also conducted. Research results show that pupils who are members of firefighting organization and have completed the course for pioneers have solved the pre examination and examination (one week later) better than other students. But the differences are not statistically important. Examination which was taken one year later showed that pupils who are not the members of the firefighting organisation gained more knowledge than those who are members and have completed the course for pioneers. Statistical differences between results of later examinations are also not statistically important.
