In the United States more than 3,500 people die and over 18,000 are injured in fires. It takes more than smoke detectors to bring these numbers down! Be Safe Be Smart
TEACHER TIP: Fire/safety drills - "While these drills are for a child's safety, anxious children may be very distressed by imagining that these events were actually happening. If there is an opportunity to signal the child in person just before the alarm sounds, this may buffer the surprise of the drill and allow children to mobilize with less distress."
