Hey kiddos! Boots ‘n Bunker here to share a few friendly reminders with you about safety. Whether you are at home or at school, safety is everyone’s job! We hope you all have an awesome and safe ’21-’22 school year!
Make sure your house has smoke detectors! Ask your parents to check them and make sure they work. If you need smoke detectors in your home, have your parents call 801-629-8000 for information on how to get them at a discounted rate.
Know the sound of the smoke alarm. When you hear a loud “beep, beep, beep,” it means get out of the house!
If there is smoke in your home, get low and get out. Crawl low below the smoke.
Plan and practice EDITH: Exit Drills In The Home! Have two ways out of your bedroom and know where to meet the rest of your family once you are out. Practice!
If there is a fire, leave the house and then call 911 from a neighbor’s house or mobile phone. Know your address for the 911 dispatchers.
Never play with fire. Lighters and matches are tools, not toys! If you find a lighter or matches, give them to an adult.
With school starting, know how to get to school safely if you are walking or riding a bike. Look both ways twice before crossing the street, follow the instructions of the crossing guards, and don’t talk to strangers.
