This chapter continues the subject of fire safety education with practical information on the dangers of fires and ways to avoid it that includes teaching skills to help the child reduce exposure to fire and prevent injuries or other damages by responding effectively to it. It provides additional materials for families to support children in fire prevention, including a home project. Sections include emphasis on fire as a tool, not a toy; reporting a fire, extinguishers, evacuation, and the stop-drop-roll technique. Also discussed is how to review the child’s fire-safety knowledge and provide suggestions to apply what has been learned. An important addition addresses how to prepare a babysitter or other caregiver with all necessary fire safety information.
