Fire Safety Day

Part of being a cub scout, is learning to be any given situation. The cubs got to tour the fire house and see how the fire fighters were ready to help them if there was ever a need. But one of the key aspects for the boys to learn is how to help themselves and their families if there was ever a fire in their homes. One of those critical elements for personal safety is to take part in developing a Family Escape Plan. You can follow the link below to print off a grid that you can use as a template to create a floor plan (or a visual footprint) of your home and how you would evacuate it in the case of an emergency. Knowledge is power, right? Don't forget to designate a meeting spot, like the mailbox or neighbor's house.

Make sure to review the sections listed above, as the boys learned about "stop, drop, and roll" and other aspects of safety that can be signed off as well.
