Fire safety is one of the most important things that parents can teach their children. Unfortunately, some kids learn about fire safety the hard way – by being involved in a fire accident. The good news is that it is never too late to teach your kids about fire safety, and there are plenty of resources available to help you do so. In this blog post, we will discuss some tips for teaching kids about fire safety, as well as some resources that you can use to get started.
The first step in teaching fire safety to kids is to make sure that they understand what it means. Explain why you are talking about fire safety and how it can help them. Next, tell the story of a time when you were burned or had a close call with flames while playing outside. Have your child read the book “Fire Safety for Kids” by R.F. Wessa and Meryl Acker to familiarize themselves with what fire safety really means before talking about it any further.
