Kick off fire safety week with a fire safety party!


Next week kicks off fire safety awareness week. Educators and parents alike will be talking to their children about the importance of having a fire plan, checking fire safety equipment and stop, drop and roll. So why not make it a memorable event by throwing a fire safety party! If you are going to talk about safety you might as well make it a memorable occasion.













 For some creative and fun firehouse invitations visit: Magic by Marcy



For some fun finger foods try a few of these firehouse favorite:


Little Smokies: Mini hot dogs wrapped in crescent rolls

Dalmation Cookies: Black and white cookies

Snap, crackle & pop: Rice Krispie treats

Firehouse Sub sandwiches

Fire cracked popcorn

Bring up the heat: Salsa & chips






What firehouse party would be complete without a super fun cake and some adorable cupcakes?


For some fireman fun try a few of these activities:

Borrow a fireman's suit from a local fire station. Have kids try it on for size or simply see how heavy it is.

With young ones you can play pin the horn on the firetruck

Give little ones a fire hat and have them race each other practicing their crawling close to the ground techniques, in order to avoid smoke.


Create a relay race with garden hoses where they have to uncurl and stretch out a hose before the other team.

Practice evacuating an inside area

Use toy firetrucks and have little ones race them



 We hope that we have ignited a spark of creativity for you to introduce some life saving skills to your young ones next week. For more resources please visit: NFPA
