Matches and lighters

Problem: Burns, fires


  • Check the location of all matches and lighters.  Don’t forget to check for those used for lighting barbecues or birthday candles or for those kept in pocketbooks or coat pockets.
  • Keep all matches and lighters out of children’s reach.
  • Teach children to always bring matches and lighters to an adult.
  • Teach older children how to Stop, Drop and Roll if their clothes ever catch fire.
