Fire Safety for Families

At SERVPRO® of Aitkin, Carlton & West St. Louis Counties, we have responded to fire damage emergencies over the years where children or teenagers were involved. According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) intervention strategies are very important when teaching children and young people about fire safety. Here are some fire safety tips and strategies from the NFPA to help keep you and your family safe: 

  • Teach young children to never touch matches or lighters. They must go tell a grown-up when matches or lighters are found
  • Establish clear rules and consequences about unsupervised and unauthorized uses of fire
  • Be a good example! Always use fire sources — matches, lighters, candles, fireplaces, and campfires — in a safe manner. Never treat them as toys, or children may imitate you
  • Talk with children about what their friends or other children are doing with fire. What are they seeing online in video games, on TV, in movies, and on social media? Teach them specific ways to resist the peer pressure to misuse fire
  • Give praise for showing respect and age-appropriate responsible behavior toward fire
