- Keep Fire Out of Reach : Always store lighters and matches well out of reach of children, preferably in a locked cabinet or cupboard up high.
- Explain the Dangers Clearly: Explain in age-appropriate terms what it is and the damage it can cause.
- Always Set the Right Example: Never use lighters or matches as a source of amusement or entertainment and always act responsibly around fires both inside and outside the home.
- Watch for Fire Starting Danger Signs: Most fires started by children occur when they are left alone and have access to a flame source.
