Three Learning Sections:

Section #1
The "Fire Triangle"

Understanding the science of fire can help you to prevent fires from happening!

All fires require three elements:

Oxygen- Just like people, fire needs air (oxygen) to "breathe." Without oxygen a fire will stop burning.

Heat -Without sufficient heat, a fire cannot start, nor can it continue to burn. Examples of heat sources would be:

  • oven or stove top
  • heater
  • lit match or lighter
  • spark caused by faulty electrical wiring

Fuel -Fuel is what "feeds" a fire. Without fuel, and fire will stop. Some examples of fuel would be:

  • wood
  • paper
  • gas
  • paint
  • coal

These three elements are commonly referred to as the "Fire Triangle." If the right amounts of each are present, and a chemical reaction occures, a fire can start.

If any one of these three elements are not present, a fire cannot start.

Section #2
Make a Difference!

Did you know that YOU can make a difference in helping to keep your home fire safe? Well, you can, and it's easy! Here are some things that you can do:

  • Keep your eye out for fire hazards, and alert your parents if you see any concerns.
  • Ask your parents to make a family escape plan.
  • Using your family escape plan, practice with your family what to do if you see or smell smoke, or if the smoke detector sounds.
  • Remember not to play around the kitchen stove, fireplace or heaters.
  • Remind your parents to test smoke detectors once a month.
  • With your parents help, write on your family calendar two times a year to change the batteries in your smoke detectors.

Section #3
Tools vs. Toys

It's important to understand that not all fire is bad. In fact, fire is used every day to make our lives better. We cook with it, warm our homes with it, and we even enjoy roasting yummy marshmallows while camping because of fire.

If fire can be used to make our lives better, then that means fire is a "tool." That's right! And as a tool, it should be used carefully and only by an adult.

Remember, fire is a tool, NOT a toy. You should never play with fire, and if you find matches or a lighter laying around, you should:

  • never pick them up or play with them
  • tell an adult immediately
