Children under age five are 1.21 times as likely as the general population to die in a fire. They are nearly eight times as likely to die in a fire started by playing with a heat source as the general population.
To address the needs of young children, NFPA is currently revising the Learn Not to Burn Preschool Program lessons plans to be taught by preschool and kindergarten teachers and the home link activities that go to parents and caregivers. The Learn Not to Burn Preschool songs and recordings by Jim Post have also been updated, and musician Dante Ware joins Jim in singing and performing many of the songs. The recordings will be free to download from our website along with the lesson plans.http://nfpa.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8351b9f3453ef0162fc473241970d-pi
The new “Stay Away from Hot Things That Hurt You” lessons plans have just been posted on NFPA’s website. Included are four lesson plans to teach the behavior, flash cards that show hot things and things that are not hot, photos of hot and not hot things in an 8 ½ by 11 format for group discussion, a Circle the Hot Things activity sheet, the “Don’t Touch Hot Things” song, and a letter to parents and guardians.
