Let's Meet
At a Safe Place

Explain to children that if a fire emergency occurs at home, families need to get out quickly and meet at a safe place outside away from the fire. Brainstorm with children safe places where their families could meet. List student responses on the board (for example: near the mailbox by the street, by the big tree, and so on). Invite each child to draw a picture of his/her house on the left side of a piece of drawing paper and a picture of his/her chosen meeting place on the right side of the paper. Give each child a precut paper doll and have the student practice moving the paper doll from the house over to the safe meeting place. Finally, let children take their pictures home with a brief note from you that encourages families to practice a home fire drill and meet at a chosen "safe place."
