Some companies sell novelty lighters that can look like toys to kids. Keep them far away from where kids play. Better yet, don’t buy them at all.
Prevention 1st, a non-profit organization dedicated to injury prevention, created After the Fire: The Teachable Moment for parents and teachers to help children ages 4 to 11 and their families cope with the emotions and answer the questions a home fire can create. The program also teaches important fire survival and fire prevention skills by incorporating activities from the play safe! be safe!® program – a fire safety education program for children sponsored by BIC.
After the Fire: The Teachable Moment program is available as a free download from here.
