Fire Safety For Children

Click Here to See Our Selection of Fire Safety For Children

The United States has one of the highest death and injury rates from fire in the industrialized world. Part of the problem is that young children don't know what common fire hazards are, and they also don't know what to do if they are caught in a fire. Fire safety for children has become increasingly important for helping families avoid injury and even death in their own homes.

Fire safety for kids is often taught by cartoon characters or people in costumes in order to get the children's attention. Many fire prevention organizations use colorful websites to teach fire safety for children. They often weave fire prevention principles into online games so that children can learn as they play. The U.S. Fire Administration sponsors one such website.

This area of education involves teaching them how to avoid fire hazards such as stoves, matches, fireworks, and other common fire starters. Children are taught how to report fires as well as how to protect themselves. Children are also taught common techniques such as stop, drop, and roll, and feeling a door for warmth in order to detect fires on the other side. But much of this type of information involves encouraging children to remind their parents to use fire prevention techniques and create evacuation plans for the family. In this way, the children learn fire safety and parents are more motivated to use those principles to protect their family.
