There are three 30 minute lessons for children in Grades 5 to 6. The children are reminded of key home fire safety messages from previous years with practical examples.
This is the last time that students receive the School Fire Education Program, and the messages are geared to their growing independence.
This includes discussing personal responsibility, peer pressure and fire safety.
Key messages include:
- In an emergency
- Staying safe
- Home escape plans
- Smoke alarms
- Preventing fires at home
- Consequences of fire
- Personal judgement/ choices/ peer pressure
- Safe practices.
Children in Grades 5 to 6 still require guidance and supervision from responsible adults to keep them safe from fire.
These resources are used and distributed in Grade 5 and 6 classrooms by the School Fire Education Instructors.
