Keeping young children fire safe!

Week of the Young ChildTM

April 12-18 is the 2015 Week of the Young ChildTM – an annual celebration to focus on the needs of young children.

Safety Tips for Keeping Kids Fire Safe:

  • Practice fire drills at home – teach two ways out of every room and practice crawling low under smoke to get outside to a family meeting spot.
  • Safe for play or Keep away – teach the difference between grown-up tools and children’s toys. Children should always keep away from adult tools and never touch matches or lighters.
  • Have a working smoke alarm in every bedroom, outside each sleeping area and on every level, including the basement.

Conduct a Home Fire Safety Check.
