5.11 Tactical Kilts are Back

Did you know that 50 percent of child fire deaths affect those under the age of 5? Escaping from a fire can be difficult for very young children because they generally lack the motor skills and mental capabilities needed to quickly escape a burning building. The U.S. Fire Administration provides fire prevention information to teach children and their caregivers about the dangers of fire. Protect your kids … install and maintain smoke alarms and residential sprinklers and practice home fire escape plans to ensure your children will be safe if a fire were to start in your home.
Children and Fire – Life Saving Tips


Young children are not able to sense danger in the same way as adults. They have a very limited ability to react quickly and properly in an emergency situation as well as little control over their environment. This increases their risk of death and injury in a fire.

* Keep matches, lighters and other items used for ignition in a secured drawer or cabinet out of the reach of children.
* Teach you children to tell you when they find matches and lighters.
* Always dress children in pajamas that meet Federal flammability standards. Avoid dressing children for sleep in loose-fitting, 100% cotton garments, such as oversized t-shirts.
* Teach children not to hide from firefighters, but to get out quickly and call for help from another location.
* Show children how to crawl low on the floor, below the smoke, to get out of the house and stay out.
* Demonstrate how to stop, drop to the ground, and roll if clothes catch fire.
* Develop and practice a home fire escape plan and designate a meeting place outside. Get out and stay out.
* Familiarize children with the sound of your smoke alarm.
* Replace mattresses made prior to the 2007 Federal Mattress Flammability Standard.
* Check under beds and in closets for burnt matches, evidence your child may be playing with fire.

Prevention Starts with You!

As of 2004, 96 percent of homes in the United States had at least one smoke alarm. However, only three-quarters of all homes had at least one working smoke alarm.

Sixty-five percent of reported home fire deaths in 2000-2004 resulted from fires in homes with no smoke alarms or no working smoke alarms.
What Can You Do?

* Install a smoke alarm on every level of your home.
* Test smoke alarm batteries every month and change them at least once a year.
* Consider installing a 10-year lithium battery-powered smoke alarm, which is sealed so it cannot be tampered with or opened.
* Create and practice an escape route with your family.

Cut your family's chances of dying in a house fire in half by having a working smoke alarm. Practicing fire-safe behaviors and knowing what to do in an emergency can give your family extra seconds to escape.

Last October I took mt grandson (then 4) to the open house down at our station. His favorite part apart from the hot dogs was our "safety trailer." Its just like a little house inside with a kitchen, living room, bedroom etc. The smoke alarms really work, there is real smoke, and the bedroom door actually gets hot as if there is a fire on the other side.Our PIO led the kids through a brief fire safety talk. The cool think is they could see, touch, and hesr what he was talking about ! Its a great resource for teaching fire safety even with the pre-school crowd. My grandson still talks about it a year later. The problem is most departments don't have such a trailer, and most of the ones that are out there are way under utilized. This is something we need to work at hard from a fire safety education standpoint !
I agree with you Rev. Crutchfield, we do need to work harder to teach our young ones fire safety education.
