Fire Safety in the Home - Prevention, Detection, Escape
NOTE: This is a three-day lesson.
Day 1: Fire Safety in the Home - PREVENTION -
Students will learn how most home fires start because of a careless action. That means most fires can be prevented before they start.
Day 2: Fire Safety in the Home - DETECTION -
Students will learn that even if everything is done right, sometimes there can still be a fire in a building. If there is a fire, we need to know about it as quickly as possible. Smoke alarms save lives. They help us quickly know there is a fire.
Day 3: Fire Safety in the Home - ESCAPE -
Students will understand that once they know there is a fire in the home, they must escape. Students will be able to explain that planning and conducting a home fire drill is an important part of the escape.
