Stay Fire Smart

From Campaign 2008: Lesson 3: Role-Play Fire Safety

In this lesson activity, students will learn what to do in case of a fire.

OBJECTIVE
Goal:  Students will learn the importance of home fire drills.

MATERIALS

Family Reproducible (PDF)
Space for a role-playing activity 

DIRECTIONS

BACKGROUND DISCUSSION:

Tell students even a safe home can have a fire. The best way to stay safe during a fire is to have a practice fire drill so that everyone knows what to do if a fire occurs.

Discuss and demonstrate each of the following fire safety behaviors:

  • Get low and go under the smoke to the nearest way out.
  • Don't open any doors until you check the door to make sure it is not hot.
  • Get out of the home and stay out.
  • Meet your family at your Outside Meeting Place.

Invite students to role-play each of the above behaviors one-by-one.

USING THE FAMILY PRINTABLE:

Tell students that they should practice a fire drill at home with their families. Distribute copies of the Family Printable (PDF) to take home. Encourage students to go to sparky.org to have their fire drills be counted as part of The Great American Fire Drill.

WRAP-UP:

Ask other teachers if your students can help conduct this fire-safety role-playing activity in their classrooms.
