My name is Sparky the Fire Dog and I am visiting the Chino Valley Independent Fire District to help you learn about fire safety as you go through the Kids Corner webpage. Click on the links below to find fun coloring sheets and safety messages. Have fun and remember, fire safety starts with you!
Striking out fire in your home requires a little homework. Print out the Home Fire Safety Checklist below (click the red check mark link) then take about 20 minutes to inspect your home. As you go from room to room, answer the questions on the sheet you printed out. For each question you answer
“yes” to, give yourself a point. When you’re finished, add up the points to find out your score. Kids, ask a grown-up to help you complete this checklist!
Home Fire Safety Checklist
When fire strikes, remember to get out and stay out!
During a fire it is important that you crawl low to the ground while using your escape route; it is safer because heat and smoke rise in a fire!

Remember the Steps! When it comes to exiting your home during a fire emergency, there are five easy steps you can take to keep your family safe!
First, create a home escape plan by drawing a floor plan of your home showing all windows and doors that can be used as emergency exits. Second, mark two ways out of each room. Third, mark all smoke detectors with (SA). Smoke detectors should be on every level of your home and in or near every sleeping area. Fourth, pick a family meeting place outside your home where everyone can meet after evacuating (like near your mailbox if it is a good distance away from your home). Fifth, remember to practice your plan at least twice a year! Click on the mailbox below for Remember the Steps coloring sheet. Click HERE to create your own Home Fire Escape Plan!

Learn to Stop, Drop and Roll! If your clothes catch fire, do not run! Instead, drop to the ground right away; cover your face with your hands to protect your airway, and roll over and over or back and forth to put out the flames. Cool the burned area with cool water and seek medical attention for serious burns.
