Fire Safety

Fires and burns are a big problem in America for preschool-aged children. Each year, thousands are injured or killed from accidents in the home that could be prevented. That's why the Home Safety Council has teamed up with Weekly Reader Custom Publishing on Start Safe: A Fire and Burn Safety Program for Preschoolers and their Families.

Start Safe was created in partnership with National Head Start Association and with support from Tyco International. Start Safe is free, and it is an ideal program to use with local preschools. It’s fun, it meets the educational abilities of young children, and it involves parents and other caregivers. Plus, Start Safe is easy to implement.
