Fire Safety for Children
The best way to teach children about fire safety is by example.
◆ Let your children see you being sensible and careful about cooking, candles, smoking and other potential fire risks.
◆ Teach them how to prevent a fire and what to do if there is a fire.
◆ You will probably need to talk about this more than once, to make sure they have remembered and understood what you have taught them.
◆ Install an audible smoke alarm.
◆ Have escape plans in place.
◆ Do not allow them to overload electrical sockets.
