Fire Safety Tips for Children in Florence?

9/9/2022 (Permalink)

A family roasts marshmallows over a campfire. We respond to fire damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Lane County.

Florence families can trust our South Eugene and Florence teams to restore fire damage efficiently. Here are some fire safety tips from the National Fire Protection Association to keep your children safe:

  • Keep matches and lighters out of the reach of children, up high, preferably in a locked cabinet
  • Closely supervise children, making sure that they are kept away from other fire sources, including lit candles, cigarettes, bonfires, and stoves
  • It is natural for young children to be curious, ask questions about fire, play with fire trucks, or pretend to cook. Use these opportunities to teach them about fire safety.
  • Explain that fire moves quickly and can hurt as soon as it touches them. Tell them this is why matches and lighters are tools for adults only.
  • Teach young children never to touch matches or lighters and to tell a grown-up when matches or lighters are found
  • Establish clear rules and consequences for unsupervised and unauthorized uses of fire
  • Be a good example! Always safely use fire sources — matches, lighters, candles, fireplaces, and campfires. Never treat them as toys, or children may imitate you.
  • Talk with children about what their friends or other children are doing with fire. Teach them specific ways to resist the peer pressure to misuse fire.
  • Give praise for showing respect and age-appropriate responsible behavior toward fire
