Making Fire Safety Fun for Kids
The National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) and the Electrical Safety Foundation International (ESFI) create fun, educational tools for children about being careful with fire and electrical outlets, plus what items may be hot and burn them, even if those items aren’t hot all the time – like your coffee mug.
Here are some tips for parents and caregivers from lesson 1 of the Learn Not To Burn program from the NFPA:
- Set the hot water temperature on the water heater no higher than 120 degrees Fahrenheit to prevent scald burns from tap water.
- Keep hot foods and liquids away from tables and counter edges so they cannot be pulled or knocked over.
- Turn the handle of cooking pans toward the back of the stove.
- Never hold a child in your arms while preparing hot food or drinking a hot beverage.
