Fire Safety Information for Parents
Fire is one of the main causes of accidental injury and death amongst children. Help keep your kids safe from fire - talk to them about the dangers of fire, and how to prevent a fire happening.
Teach your children what to do if there is a fire - make sure you have an escape plan, and that you and your family practise it together.
You can find out more about helping your child stay safe from fire on the Government website 'FireKills', including useful links and a PDF leaflet - fire safety information for parents and carers.
On this website you can find some great fire safety games, letting children learn and have fun at the same time.
Most children show a natural interest and curiosity in fire. However, for some young people this interest develops into something more dangerous, putting themselves, their family, friends and homes at risk. Children under 10 cause 6,000 fires a year.
