Preschoolers are naturally curious, and they often do things they're not supposed to do. While sneaking a cookie from the cupboard might not be such a big deal, playing with matches or a lighter can be fatal. Take the appropriate precautions and be sure to review this information with your preschooler often.
If your child goes to preschool, there is a good chance they will have an opportunity to be visited by firefighters during Fire Prevention Week in October. This will show them what firefighters have to wear and what they will look like when they come in the house if there is a fire. Sometimes they can be rather frightening dressed in their mask and suit, so it's best if your child sees them for the first time now instead of during an actual fire. If your child does not go to preschool, see if your local fire department has an open house during the year where you can bring your child to meet the firefighters and see the fire station.
