It is never too early to start teaching your kids about fire safety. There are many tips and tricks out there for doing this and with how dry Spring has been in 2018, now is the perfect time to start checking these out and talking to your kids.
Don't forget that kids learn from watching and listening to you. While you are working with fire this summer, make sure you talk about why there is a ring of stones around the fire or a fire pit used and make sure they see you prepare that water bucket or hose to keep nearby. Start discussing now the safety reasons for going to see a fireworks show on July 4th instead of getting fireworks to set off at home. Talk to your kids about the repercussions of wild fires - including the fines that they may be held responsible for paying if they are found responsible for starting the fire.

While on the topic of fire safety - are you thinking of how to protect your belongings and/or property? #1 item on your list should be to make sure you have insurance now before the fire season starts - once there is a fire in your area, the companies will suspend writing policies until the fire moratorium is lifted. Remember to keep a defensible space around your home. When a wild fire is in the area, make sure you know the evacuation routes and pay attention to the authorities.
