Fire Prevention Week Classroom Resources Available Online

It's Fire Prevention Week, and there are a number of resources online for teachers with some important lessons to students.

Underwriters Laboratories (UL) has partnered with Disney to create resources featuring Timon and Pumbaa of The Lion King. They offer a 30 page teacher activity kit with lessons, worksheets, classroom activities, and games, all with a "Safety Smart" theme. It's geared for students between four and eight years of age.

The activity kit, as well as guides for parents and ambassadors (fire safety program coordinators) are also offered. They can be downloaded by clicking right here.

This YouTube video featuring Timon and Pumbaa includes important lessons for young students.

UL also promotes the "Close Your Door" campaign. Open doors are one of the main reasons fire spread through a house quickly (especially at night). Closed doors can buy a family time to escape when seconds count. Teachers can find "Close Your Door" resources by clicking right here.

A "Home Escape Plan" is essential in any fire safety program. The National Fire Protection Association has printable resources for families to devise a plan that can avoid tragedy. They can be found by clicking right here.

The Hartford's Junior Marshall Program includes downloadable activities, coloring sheets, and teacher guides. You can see all the resources by clicking right here.

The Safe Kids campaign offers a fire safety program for teachers and schools, as this video details.

We'll add more resources as to this guide as they become available.
