This Firefighter Ace tabletop display aims to stop fires before they even start. It’s a great first step in any fire safety curriculum with useful information and bright, engaging graphics.
It begins by noting that fires are fast and dangerous, but by being learning to be fire safe, children can prevent fire and burns. The display advises children to stay away from matches and lighters. These items are tools for adults. Children are directed to tell a grown-up if they find matches or lighters or if they see someone playing with these items.
The next section of the display addresses setting fires. Small fires can easily turn into large fires and can quickly burn down an entire house. And not only can fires kill and injure other people, but setting fires is illegal.
Children can be fire safe by recognizing and pointing out things that are potential fire hazards. Flammable items should be at least three feet from fireplaces or heaters. Candles should be blown out when leaving a room. And children should let adults know if they see frayed electrical cords or overloaded electrical outlets.
Burns are also an issue of concern. Children are directed to stay three feet from the stove or oven and to use potholders while helping adults cook. Pot handles should be turned to the inside of the stove so they don’t get bumped off the stove. Hot foods and drinks can burn, so adults should test these items for excessive heat. Children are also reminded that hot bath water can burn, too, and that they should turn on the cold water, then the hot water.
The last section of the display addresses how to treat burns. First degree burns make skin look red like a sunburn. These can be cooled with cool water. But burns that turn the skin dark red or black or cause blisters are second or the third degree burns. These burns require immediate medical attention.
The display concludes with the message, “Fire Safety Begins with YOU!”
