Today is Chuggington Fire Patrol Rescue Day! Our family received the Chuggington Fire Patrol Rescue DVD and Train and, of course, my boys loved it! The Chuggington DVDs are always a hit at our house and the the fire patrol theme couldn’t have been better. We actually had my son’s 4th birthday party at a local firestation. Both boys were glued to the TV for all six episodes.
Here are some important tips from Firechugger Asher and the National Fire Protection Association:
Asher says, “Plan ahead!”
- Create a home escape plan so every member of your family knows what to do and where to go if there’s a fire. Designate a meeting spot, such as a tree or mailbox, that’s a safe distance from the home. And practice your home fire drill both at night and during the day.
Asher says, “Stop a fire before it starts!”
- Keep matches and lighters out of sight and out of reach from children. Store them up high, preferably in a locked cabinet or drawer. It’s also important to teach kids that lighters and matches are tools for adults only and that they should tell a grown-up if they see these items lying around.
Asher says, “Cool it in the kitchen!”
- Always keep an eye on the stove while you’re cooking, and use a timer as a reminder that the stove or oven is on. Create a “kid-free zone” around the stove as well as areas where hot food and drinks are prepared. And make sure to keep anything that can catch fire, including oven mitts and towels, away from hot appliances!
Asher says, “Sound the alarm!“
- Smoke detectors are a key part of a home fire escape plan. Make sure to install smoke detectors on every floor of the home, especially inside and outside bedrooms. Don’t forget to test all smoke alarms at least once a month!
Asher says, “Stay low and stay out!“
- If, during a fire, you have to escape through smoke, get low, go under the smoke and close the doors behind you as you leave each room. It’s crucial to remind children that, once outside, they should never go back inside for anything, including pets or toys. It’s best to wait to call the fire department until you get outside and are a safe distance away from the fire.
Asher says, “Follow these blazin’ safety tips and you’ll be in control and ready to roll if there’s ever a fire.”
