How Kids Can Prevent Fires
Never play with matches or lighters.
Never handle gasoline or liquids that burn easily.
Be careful around stoves, fireplaces, and barbecues.
Do not cook without an adult around.
If something catches fire or you see smoke, quickly tell an adult or dial 911.
Stay on the phone and listen for instructions.
Ask your teacher or parents about going on a field trip to a local fire station.
Practice fire drills with your school AND your family.
