This kit is designed for the start of the school year and the CIMC has 8 copies so each school will have a kit to share. This unit is in two parts: (1) School Safety and (2) Fire Safety.
(1) Using materials available at your school site, teach students the school and playground safety rules. Additionally be sure to teach the procedures for fire, earthquake, and lock-down drills. Note: The kit does not contain any materials for these lessons.
(2) There are 4 lessons from play safe! be safe! developed by the folks who make BIC lighters. The first lesson introduces children to firefighters and their equipment. The next two lessons teach safe responses to fire: Stop, Drop and Roll and Crawl Low Under Smoke. The last lesson is about avoidance of fire starting materials (matches, lighters, etc.). The kit includes picture cards, games, a DVD, and a read-aloud book. English and Spanish parent handouts are available.
