Fire Prevention Week

Some of you who know me know that I'm a fanatic when it comes to safety (and germs--but that's a whole other topic!). So when I learned that this is Fire Prevention Week, I was giddy with excitement. Not that I can't (and don't) teach my children fire prevention other times, but a whole week dedicated to fire prevention--that is a safety-lover's dream come true.

This is a great week to thank the firefighters in your neighborhood for all they do to keep you safe. Hey I might even bake some cookies to take to them! :)

This link from Toytown Treasures was sent to me by someone in our local homeschool group. I checked it out this morning and it is pretty much a "one-stop shop" to teaching fire safety. (Ahh, safety bliss!)

Hope you take time out this week to thank a firefighter AND teach your children about fire safety.

Do you have a fire escape plan?


  1. "thank the firefighters"

    What a great idea! I think I'll start with my Papaw and baby brother (retired fire chief and current fireman respectively!). ;)

  2. It was that here too. Leala did stuff at preschool with it and we showed her all our smoke detectors and what to do if they go off. The firefighters came to the preschool with their trucks. Now that is awesome! Hope you're having a good week!

  3. Thanks for the information - we will do some fire prevention education this week too! We do have a safety plan and also have all taken basic first aid. We should go to the new fire station and take a quick tour ( it's lovely) and give them some cookies too!

  4. Fire Prevention all over...so glad to hear it! :) Taking a tour is a must. Thanks for visiting Birdie, Naomi and Heather.
