Wellness Shot: Fire Drills At Home For Kids

Do your kids know what to do if there’s a fire in your home? Schools have fire drills, try one at your house! Fire experts say there has been an increase in home fires while we’re all sheltering in place.

This is the perfect time to teach kids things like if the room is filling with smoke, get FLAT ON THEIR BELLIES AND CRAWL OUT. Touch any closed doors with the back of your hand, if it’s hot DON’T OPEN IT, head to the second way out. Talk to your kids about ways to get out of each room in your house.

Check out this fantastic video, with kids demonstrating a variety of fire safety procedures, put together by the Las Vegas Fire Department. Please watch with your family!
