First Grade Fire Safety Program

Each year, Enumclaw Fire Department visits each first grade class in our district and holds a presentation on Fire and Life Safety. Our objective is to allow students to learn and explore fire safety in a safe and interactive environment. By introducing students to a positive experience with firefighters, we hope to teach valuable lessons for preventing emergency situations and to help reduce anxiety and fear during a real emergency.

During each classroom presentation, firefighters talk on subjects using age appropriate curriculum.

We cover topics including:

  • “What is an emergency?”
  • How to call 911
  • Smoke Alarms
  • Stop, Drop, Cover and Roll
  • Family Fire Escape Plans
  • Helmets and Seatbelts
  • Tools vs Toys
  • Lighters/Matches are NOT Toys
  • Stranger Danger

 


Childhood Safety

Accidental injuries are the leading cause of death for children under age 14. As parents, it can be overwhelming to decide where and when to start the learning process with children to teach them to be safe in this world. It probably seems like there are a million different topics to teach them what to do and not to do.

Enumclaw Fire Department would like to help with some basics on safety for children!
