Now is the time of the year to talk with your kids about fire safety. With many of us stuck in our homes (see the post before this about being snowed in) and having real Christmas trees, this is a talk we all need to have. Even if you don't have a real tree, your kids definitely need to know what to do if a fire would happen to break out. I know that everyone thinks it won't happen to them. However, I am sure that the people who have house fires think that also.
Liberty Mutual has a great website dedicated to being fire smart. This is a great way to start a conversation with your kids. There are some great forms on this site that help you develop your fire plan and to just help you start the conversation. Even though my kids are still pretty little, this is a conversation we started having with Madison last year already. They even have sections especially for children, parents, and educators. You are also able to search your local firehouses and learn about them too!
Be safe this holiday season and make sure you check out BeFireSmart just in case.
