A research team recently set out to examine changes in home fire safety knowledge and practices over time for parents of newborn children and expecting parents. Home fire safety knowledge of 103 parents was assessed both prior to, and then immediately after, watching the 5-minute video “Home Safe Home” by the Burn Safety Network.
Participating parents were then reassessed at a two-week follow-up home visit to see how much they retained using the U.S. Fire Administration’s Home Safety Checklist PDF 253 KB.
