Plan Your Escape to Fire Safety

Kidsand Fire SafetyHey Kids! Are you interested in learning about fire safety? Good! I have gathered together some of my awesome fire safety friends to help guide you. I'm sure if you look you will find them all. 

Some of their names are Arthur, Sparky, Emily, Buzzy, and Hersey. Remember, before you start surfing the internet, you are going to need your parent's permission and guidance. Trust me, it's worth it!

But before you start surfing, please let your parents know that you know that "playing" with fire is dangerous and that you'll never do it without the supervision of a responsible adult. Even with vigilant supervision, though, accidents happen and you want your parents to be sure your group health insurance is up to date or that the cheap medical insurance coverage they buy personally is actually affordable (useful) rather than merely cheap. More about that in the "Hey Parents" section below.

Hey Parents! Fire Safety is extremely important to protect the ones we love. Prevention is just as important as learning what to do in case of a fire. These guidelines provide statistics, facts, resources, checklists, tips, and regulations.

Fire can start as fun, useful, and educational but it can quickly become a catastrophic calamity in the blink of an eye. When your children get old enough to want to know more about fire, it's a signal that your family is changing and a re-evaluation of your insurance coverage is in order. Maybe it's time to ditch the cheap medical insurance and get serious and get a health insurance quote from a new carrier or two to see what's best for your family during this phase of life.

While you're at it, think about other forms of insurance that bring peace of mind to a growing family – term vs whole life insurance, for instance, or long-term disability vs short term. What about your house and car? Does the insurance you have in place on those investments meet the needs of your family today?

Ah, but back to the fire. . . Remember, these sites were written for adults. Please use caution if you allow your children sit with you while you learn more.
