Branching Out Theme of the Week: Fire Prevention & Safety

Each year, we dedicate a few weeks to learn about community helpers that are so invaluable in our neighborhoods. This week, in conjunctions with celebrations around town, we recognize Fire Safety Week. It’s never too soon to start talking about safety and how to protect yourself. This week we will practice to get low under smoke and go, as well as “Stop, Drop and Roll.” We also will look at Fire Fighters protective clothing and trucks so that children can be familiar and not afraid of those trying to help! Talk to your children about an escape plan in your home and where you will meet should an emergency happen.
