Fire Prevention Week - How To Teach Fire Safety

FPW203FeetTwitter

Parents, Caregivers & Teachers - Cooking is the No. 1 cause of home fires and home fire injuries. This year’s Fire Prevention WeekTM (FPW) campaign, “Serve Up Fire Safety in the Kitchen!TM”, works to educate everyone about simple but important actions they can take to keep themselves and those around them safe.

Did you know children younger than 5 years old are at the highest risk for burn injuries? Burn injuries in young children most frequently occur from contact burns that result from touching a hot object, such as a stove top or an iron. Young children also experience a high number of burns from hot liquids (scalds), such as hot coffee, soup, or boiling water.

Introduce Fire Prevention Week to students, your family, or your community through fun, interactive lessons and activities for all ages. Here are a few interactive PDF's that are really helpful:
