It’s important to teach children about fire safety. October is Fire Safety Month, with Fire Safety Week being during the week of October 9th. As we head into Fire Safety Week, plan to use some fire safety worksheets to teach your kids what to do in case of a fire emergency.
Fire Safety Worksheets and Printables
Over the years, I have seen an increase in house fires around Christmastime when people are busy with family obligations and outings with friends. They forget to turn off the lights on their tree or don’t realize their tree needs water.
Teaching your children the importance of fire safety should be something you can add to life skills and can be taught at any age. In schools it is usually taught as early as preschool.
What is Fire Safety Week?
Fire Safety Week, also called Fire Prevention Week is a week long national health observance that begins on October 9th each year. It was originally created by President Calvin Coolidge to commemorate the Great Chicago Fire which began on October 8, 1871.
This fire caused devastating damage, destroyed 2,000 acres of land, over 17,000 structures and left 100,000 people homeless and 250 dead. During Fire Prevention Week, fire fighters provide education to help decrease casualties caused by fires.
Teachers and parents use lesson plans and activities to teach kids fire safety tips and fire prevention tips.
