Fire and Burn Prevention in Early Childhood Settings

A true fire emergency can be frightening and very different from the practiced fire drill. Participants will identify fire hazards in childcare homes and centers, and discuss what to do in a true fire emergency. Participants will demonstrate fun developmentally appropriate activities teach young children about fire prevention and safety, including "two ways out," "get low and go!" and "smoke detectors." This program includes a list of curriculum resources and ways to involve parents and community personnel in fire prevention and burn injury.
