October 4 to October 8 2010 is National Schools Fire Safety Week. This campaign is aimed at raising fire safety awareness and to help educate children on fire safety issues.
The annual event is organised by The Fire Fighters Charity and Fire Kills campaign. This year’s topic is called Matches and Lighters – Tools Not Toys. The brigades of North Lincolnshire will be visiting schools to deliver talks on fire safety awareness and the dangers of using matches and lighters. The campaign is also aimed at providing useful tips for parents.
The campaign has a website that can be accessed where children can play interactive games and adults can gain tips and learn activities that can help to educate their children to be safe around matches and lighters.
