It’s never too early to begin having conversations about fire safety with your children. Your kids should always know how important it is to exercise good safety measures in the home.
They should also know what to act in case of a fire or another emergency.
There are many ways to present fire safety tips to your children. The way you go about these lessons will depend on your child’s individual needs, learning style, and cognitive abilities.
The Internet is a great resource. You can find fire safety materials to suit all ages and stages of development. Such materials range from articles to read aloud or alongside each other, coloring pages, and hands-on activities to practice good safety skills.
Another great idea is to visit your local fire station. Most fire stations offer courses in fire safety for children. This is a wonderful way to drive the points home. Not to mention, these excursions can be very exciting for your kiddos! What kid doesn’t want the chance to meet a real-life firefighter and have a peek inside a firetruck?
