Don’t Let Kids Play With Fire!

 Kids playing with fire destroyed 14,500 buildings in one year. What can you do to stop kids from playing with fire?

  • Store matches and lighters out of children’s reach and sight.
  • Never use lighters or matches as a source of amusement for children; they may imitate you.
  • Use only lighters designed with child-resistant features.
  • Explain to children that matches and lighters are tools for adults only.
  • Teach children to tell an adult if they see matches or lighters.
  • Never leave matches or lighters in a bedroom or any place where children may go without supervision.
