Fire Prevention Education.
Ehmann, Jeanne; Claus, William C.
The fire prevention education bulletin helps schools continue their work to make the home, school, and community safe places in which to live and to help children and young people live in safe ways without developing undue fears. Briefly discussed are the goals of a fire prevention program, who should be concerned with fire prevention education, where the school's responsibility lies, and what approach should be used in the development of a school fire prevention program. Suggested learnings are given for the K-3 program in such areas as the home, school, neighborhood, and community and are integrated with the science and social studies curriculum. The suggested learnings for grades four through six center on fire prevention in our country and in selected regions of the world and are integrated with the science and social studies curriculum. Grades seven through twelve suggested learnings concentrate on various scientific concepts and are integrated with other specific curriculum areas. The document concludes with a discussion of fire drill guidelines for the school and home, a home fire drill inspection blank, and how to evaluate a fire prevention program. Appended to the document are information on various kinds of fire extinguishers and New York State's fire drill and fire prevention education laws. (Author/BP)
