What Your Kids Need to Know About a House Fire

A house fire can happen fast and cause lots of damage in a short amount of time. Your property can be restored thanks to specialists. That is why it is more important to protect your family.

Children can get nervous or anxious when they see a fire in their home. That is why it is important to teach your children fire safety tips. You should regularly practice the below safety tips with your children. This way, they will know exactly what to do during an emergency.

Safety tips to teach your children:

  1. Roll Out of Bed
    Fires often occur while you’re sleeping. Your children should not sit up in bed while there is smoke or a blaze in their room. This could expose them to intense temperatures. When practicing your kid’s safety plan, let them know they should roll out of bed and onto the floor.
  2. Test the Doors
    Children should understand that they should place the back of their hands against a door before opening it. If the door is hot, they should stay where they are or find another way out.
  3. Crawl Through the Home
    To prevent smoke inhalation and burns, children should crawl underneath the fire. The basic crawl involves getting on all fours and keeping the nose pointed at the floor.
    If the heat from the is powerful, you should also teach your kids a crawl where they keep their legs parallel to the floor.

  4. Get to Safety If Trapped
    Your children should also know what to do when an escape is not possible. Tell them that they should get to a room with a door and a window and they should then close the door and open the window. They can then either climb out the window or yell for help.
