Make an evacuation plan for your family for your home in case of fire and practice this plan. Include a meeting spot within this plan. (Remember to stay in this meeting spot when there is an emergency.) Keep items away from exits in rooms. If there is a fire in your house, do not try to collect your toys-get out fast. We learned about calling 911 in case of an emergency. Never play with matches or lighters. If you smell smoke-get down. Check smoke detectors often.
The children also received "goodie bags" presented by the Arlington Fire Department.
