Educating Kids about Fire

Have you educated your kids about fire safety? Do you know how to talk about fire safety with your kids? 

 

 

Here are a few tips:

 -Keep matches and lighters in a secured drawer or cabinet.

 -Have your children tell you when they find matches and lighters.

 -Develop a home fire escape plan. Practice it with your children and designate a meeting place outside.

 -Supervise young children closely. Do not leave them alone even for short periods of time.

 -Take the mystery out of fire by teaching children that fire is a tool, not a toy.

 -Teach children the nature of fire. It is FAST, HOT, DARK and DEADLY!

 -Demonstrate how to stop, drop to the ground and roll if their clothes catch fire.

 -Show children how to crawl low on the floor, below the smoke, to get out of the house and stay out in the case of fire.

 -Teach children not to hide from firefighters, but to get out quickly and call for help.
