ADT Fire Safety Tips for Kids

"It’s inevitable that your child will be curious about fire. The best way to teach fire safety for kids is to talk to them about the dangers. Make sure to also keep lighters and matches away from small children, and always talk about fire safety. Tips for teaching fire safety for kids can be found online, along with workbooks and fun guides, like our Fire Safety Packet! Make learning about child safety fun for your kids with these fire safety tips, and they’ll be more likely to remember what to do if there’s ever an emergency.

Does your family have an escape plan in place in the event of a fire? If not, teach your kids about what to do and set a meeting point for the family, a safe distance away from the house.

As your children grow, they want to do everything you do – including cooking. Because of the many fire-related risks of cooking, it’s important to be extra careful when your kids want to help in the kitchen. Make sure they understand the dangers related to cooking and don’t play around in the kitchen."
