Fire Safety

What Can You Do? is a program developed by the Oregon Office of State Fire Marshal. This health kit has selected lessons from that curriculum (extra lessons are filed in the back of the notebook). The CIMC has 8 copies so that each school can have a kit to share in the fall to complement required classroom fire and earthquake drill practice. The 5 lessons are designed to review personal fire safety measures and then move on to fire safety in homes. Homework assignments involve the family. The first two lessons review fire and earthquake safety; students demonstrate personal fire safety skills in partners and the whole class acts out earthquake safety while listening to a simulation story. In the third lesson, students are deputized as fire marshals and explore information about the cause of home fires. The fourth lesson is a follow-up at home with a smoke alarm survey and designing a home fire escape plan. The last lesson is about decision-making in regards to campfires, fireworks, and kitchen and electrical fires. The kit has two DVD’s and blacklines needed for the handouts.
