Talking with kids about fire safety and burn prevention is key to ensuring they know what to do in an emergency! We encourage you to review the below websites and resources for activities, games and information that is helpful for teaching the children in your life how to be fire smart!

Here are some things you can do to ensure the children in your life are prepared in an emergency:

  • Make a home fire escape plan and practice it at least twice a year with your children.

  • Have a fire escape plan for young children who cannot get outside by themselves. Talk about who will help each child get out safely.

  • Children should know what to do when they hear a smoke alarm and there is no adult around. Help them practice going to an outside meeting place.

  • Teach children to never go back inside a building that is on fire.

  • Keep children 3 feet away from anything that can get hot.

  • Keep smoking materials locked up in a high place.

  • Never play with lighters or matches when you are with your children.
