Fire Safety for Kids

A fire can happen to anyone. We all think that it isn’t possible that we will be a victim, but it could happen to you.  There are many types of fires and many causes.  Faulty wiring, a faulty product, a space heater left on, or… kids.

Just the other day there was a fire in a neighborhood close to my own.   This fire was caused by teenagers playing with a lighter in a bedroom.   Think back to when you were a teenager.  You probably played with matches and lighters now and again.  I know that I did.  Heck, I almost burned our house down lighting tissue paper in my bedroom when I was about 8 years old. It makes sense to discuss fire safety with our kids.

Here are a couple of fire safety resource sites:
