Smokey Bear fire safety class for children to be held in St. Louis

See also

Kids in the St. Louis area have the opportunity to learn about fire safety during a Get Your Smokey On! class on February 26. The Missouri Department of Conservation will present the fire safety class to children ages 3 through 6 from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. at the Rockwoods Reservation Education Center.

During the class, children will learn about Smokey Bear and how he became synonymous with fire protection. In addition, kids will be taught five rules of fire safety.

This class is a good opportunity for parents to introduce the subject of fire to children in a positive, empowering way or to reinforce emergency procedures previously discussed. In the event of fire, it is important for young children to know how to react, especially if an adult is incapacitated or it is otherwise necessary for the child to escape alone. Teaching young children the basics of fire safety can give them a sense of control in an otherwise potentially paralyzing situation.

Parents who wish to register their children for this fire safety class should call 636-458-2236 by February 25.
