Fire needs three things to live. Heat (flames) Fuel (wood, paper, books, cotton, etc.) Oxygen (air) Take away any one of these things and the fire goes OUT!
Firemen use this knowledge to fight fires! They use water to remove HEAT. They use Foam to remove Oxygen. They use axes and pike poles to remove fuel.
Fire Fighters wear protective clothing to stay safe. Helmets to protect from falling objects. Steel reinforced boots to protect their feet and legs. Bunker pants/quick-hitches and coat, to protect from heat and falling hot liquid. YOU don’t have this protective clothing.
Never Play with Matches or Lighters If you find matches give them to an adult Never play with a lighter If you see a lighter, have an adult take care of it Never play with fire of any kind Playing with fire can cause your clothes to burn
What do you do if your clothes catch on fire? Fire needs oxygen to live. Rolling takes away the fire’s oxygen. Running increases the oxygen and the fire gets bigger! So What Should YOU do?
