My fire dept has two kindergarten through 5th grade schools, a religious childrens academy and a large childrens day care/pre school in town totalling about 2,000 children and that's where we focus each year on Fire Prevention Week.
The kids love the interaction. They love to learn and their minds are wide open to what we have to say. So many questions. Some of our favorites are "What do you do if your firehouse is on fire", "What if my goldfish is on fire will his water put him out", "What if its nighttime and your sleeping and its dark out will your mommy still let you come to my fire". Some of the braver kids love to try on the firefighter gear and say one day when they are bigger they want to be firefighters too.

Fire Prevention Week is a great time to educate the children in your community. And firefighters can learn alot from the children as well. As adults we can learn from children to keep our minds open to learning new things, remembering old lessons and to keep learning something new everyday of our lives. Learn to face what we fear, find out more about it and bring that new discovery back to someone else young and old, so they can keep learning too.
