Safety Team Advice

  • Matches and lighters are for grownups
  • Do not play with fire

  • If you become trapped in smoke, get down on your hands and knees. There will be fresh, cool air near the floor.

  • If you think there is a fire, before opening the door, feel it with the back of your hand and check the handle. If it’s hot don’t open it, find another way out


  • If the fire alarm goes off, a cool door and handle may still not mean that it is a safe way out. Kneel down and open the door a little to see if it is safe.

  • If your clothes catch fire

  • STOP, DROP & ROLL , NEVER RUN! - If you can, roll up in a rug or blanket
  • Check smoke alarms once a week

    • It will give you early warning of a fire.
      • Replace the battery when it is needed.
      • Do not take the battery out if it goes off when you are cooking, move it to a new place.
      • Do not take the battery out to use in a toy.
