Friendly Firefighter


If there is ever a fire at your house and you can't get out, stay low to the ground and try to go to a window and wave something. If you cannot wave something, hang a sheet out of the window so the firefighters know where you are at. DO NOT HIDE!!

A lot of children hide under their beds and in their closets, which makes it harder for us to find you. It will be smoky, and you will be scared.

A firefighter may look scary to you, like the firefighter in this picture, but we dress this way to protect us from the smoke and fire so that we can help you and your family.

Practice your escape plan and what you are going to do if you have a fire at your house. Also practice with the babysitter so that everyone knows what to do.
