Fire safety

With the tragedy of California's wildfires in the news, children may have questions and fears about fire. At Summit local firefighters visit to teach our preschoolers about STOP, DROP and ROLL and fire safety and prevention. Creating and practicing a safety plan at home can reinforce what to do in the event of a real emergency. Designate a safe place outside the house to meet, like by a swingset or mailbox. Look at pictures of firefighters in full gear so your child can ask questions and not be afraid of how they look. For more fire safety tips and activities, visit these websites.
