BURRILLVILLE – It’s that time of year again when warmer weather brings longer days and more outdoor activities in and around the house or apartment.
One of these outdoor activities is lighting the grills and fire pits during the summer months. There are fire hazards associated with lighting barbecues and fire pits in our backyards. One of these fire hazards is clothes catching on fire if someone stands too close to an open flame. Hot amber can land on clothing, and standing too close to an open flame can cause your own clothing to catch fire.
It is highly recommended that all children stay at least three feet away from open flames in barbecues and fire pits so that they are safer when engaging in outdoor garden activities. The Fearless Dino Protector Squad Fire and Fire Prevention and Prevention Dinosaurs teach kids about fire safety and prevention, and raise awareness of numerous fire hazards year round.
This week’s Sunday cartoon features the Fearless Dino Protector Squads’ own dinosaur puppy. His name is 911. The message tells children what to do if their clothes catches on fire. It’s simple information with great pictures that shows kids what to do to avoid burns. If your clothes catch fire; “First stop! Second, you FALL! Then you roll! ”Until the fire is completely extinguished and extinguished. Parents, guardians, teachers, police officers, and firefighters can use this fire and prevention cartoon as a visual guide and have children practice stop, drop, and roll fire exercises outside on the grass. The police and fire brigade organize open days, barbecues and demonstrations in the summer and autumn months that attract children and families to their communities. This can be a great fire safety and burn prevention activity for kids to study with police officers and firefighters and show them what, with practice, they can do to stay safer.
