Program Details

Format

I. Causes of Fire
Key Concepts: Fire is very important, but fire can be very dangerous.
• Fire facts: To sustain a fire, oxygen, fuel and heat are needed. Controlling one or two of the three elements of fire can extinguish a fire
or reduce the effects of fire and burns.
• What starts fires (candles, matches, fireworks and other fire tools)?
Overview of Activities: After an introduction and discussion of the necessary conditions for a fire to occur, students will develop an understanding of fire, and an appreciation for preventing fires from starting.

II. Home Fire Prevention
Key Concepts: Last year over 80 percent of all fire causalities happened at home. Many of our homes aren’t equipped with the proper fire safety tools and prevention plans necessary to help stop fires from starting. Most home fires happen while we are sleeping which makes being properly prepared even more critical.
• What starts fires (candles, matches, and other fire tools)
• Tools vs. Toys
• Safety Tips on how to help prevent fires from starting at home by examining the Hazard House
Overview of Activities: After an introduction and discussion students develop an understanding that the fuel for fires and oxygen are always present in our homes, so controlling heat is key for fire prevention.

III. Basic use of 911 for emergencies
Key Concepts: 911 is used to report emergencies that involve people only
• Which of the situations presented require calling 911 for emergency response
Overview of Activities: After an introduction and discussion students develop an understanding of evaluating situations and make determinations to use the 911 emergency system or use other options to resolve a problem.

IV. Stop, Drop, and Roll
Key Concept: Students learn the importance of not running and keeping others from doing so if clothing is on fire. When you stop drop and roll you are keeping oxygen from the fire, and the fire will go out.
• How to STOP! DROP! ROLL!
Overview of Activities: After an introduction and discussion students will become pro-active in emergency preparedness by using the steps of stop, drop and roll to extinguish fire on clothing.

V. Crawl low under smoke
Key Concept: Smoke can be poisonous and can damage eyes and lungs. Smoke rises and leaves a little crawl space near the floor in a burning room. Staying low in smoke while exiting saves lives.
• The dangers and behavior of smoke. Smoke can hurt as badly as fire can.
Overview of Activities: After an introduction and discussion students will increase their understanding of crawling under smoke as a lifesaving step during a fire in a smoke filled room.

VI. Fire Drill Practice
Key Concept: Having an escape plan for home and school is necessary and must be practiced. Remaining calm and moving quickly is foremost. It is necessary to have more than one way out in case one exit is blocked by fire. Having fire drill gives us practice what to do in a real emergency.
• Having fire drills helps us know if your escape plan works
• Learning how to tell if a closed door in your escape route is safe to open during a fire
Overview of Activities: After an introduction and discussion, the routine of practicing fire drills will be reinforced.

Assessment: Oral Evaluation
