Fire Prevention Week Safety Tips

October 4-10 is fire prevention week. We all could use a refresher on some safety tips. I’ll be sharing this info with my children as well. There are fun games and printables that you family can explore together to help your child learn ways to stay safe!

Sparky the Fire Dog® needs your help to help spread the word about this year’s Fire Prevention Week theme: “Stay Fire Smart! Don’t Get Burned.” Use the materials in this section to learn how to prevent burns and keep your home fire safe.
