Liberty Mutual’s “Be Fire Smart” site is a great resource for fire safety information, presented in a fun and interactive way. There are separate sections for parents, teachers, and children - covering a variety of fire-safety and prevention topics. On the site you will find information on planning fire escape routes, tips for preventing fires, and other home safety information - most of it interactive or using video.
There are also fun ways to teach kids about fire safety, including:
- Download and print the Be Fire Smart coloring book.
- Learn what all of the firefighting gear is called, and what it is used for.
- Play a game called “How Fast Can You Spot Trouble”.
If you are a parent, be sure to review this information yourself to make sure you know how to keep your home and family safe from fire. Use the teaching tools to help your kids understand important safety tips.
If you are a teacher, they have a wide variety of teaching materials available to you, including complete lesson plans for fire safety awareness.
Great Site! Way to go Liberty Mutual!
