Many Children who set fires lack both supervision and fire safety education.  The following are a few things, according to the Burn Institute, that you can do to make sure your children are safe.

        Educate your children that: 

  • Fire is a tool, not a toy. 
  • Fire is dangerous and that it can kill. 
  • All fires, even small ones, can spread quickly.
  • Even adults must follow fire safety rules. 
  • Leave matches alone.

       Other things you can do:

  • Supervise children at all times
  • Store matches and lighters in a secure place away from a child's reach 
  • Occasionally check under your child's bed and inside the closets for burned materials. Parents often discover the first signs of evidence that a child may be playing with fire. 
  • Teach children not to touch matches and lighter, but to tell an adult where they are and have the adult put them in a safe place.
  • Explain the importance of only using matches as a tool and when an adult is present.
