Family Fire Safety

Families have special fire safety needs.

Parents and caregivers need information on how to keep their children safe and how to help them respond to a fire emergency.  Children need to know, at a level they can understand, what to do if a fire happens or the smoke alarm goes off.

The Seattle Fire Department has developed a collection of activities and family worksheets for parents and caregivers.  These materials provide tools to help teach children what to do if a fire should happen in their home.  Every parent wants their family to be safe.  Our hope is these activities will help them do that.
