Fire Safety

October was fire safety. All of our classes talked about what firemen do, what fire safety is, when/how to call 9-1-1. We had firemen come and visit. They showed us that firemen are just normal people who have special gear and training. The following are good reminders year-round for your family.

*Check that electrical cords are in good shape.

*If you have a chimney make sure that it has been inspected and cleaned yearly.

*Portable space heaters are 3 feet from anything that can burn.

* The clothes dryer has a clean vent and filter

*All smoke alarms work when tested.

*Flammable objects are not to be placed on oven-tops in use.

*Always make sure that lighters and matches are out of the reach of children.

*Have a family fire drill and talk about a safe place to meet outside the house incase of a fire.

*Talk with your children about the importance of not playing with fire.
