Burn Awareness Week teaches kids how to be responsible for their personal safety, and increases family awareness of potentially harmful situations.
To provide greater effectiveness to our program, we have decided to move the date to coincide our Burn Awareness Week Elementary School Program with the already well established National Fire Prevention Week, which is observed annually every October.
The program is educational, fun and interactive, and includes a popular poster contest. The curriculum is designed to be delivered in the classroom with age-appropriate safety lessons for K-7. However, anyone can access the program, which includes burn awareness safety tip information, student activity sheets, quizzes, colouring pages, and animated videos. The program is available in PDF format for easy download and printing.
This year’s theme is: ‘Look. Listen. Learn. Be aware. Fire can happen anywhere.’
This year, as part of the development of our Burn Awareness activities, we are adding a new video contest component with the use of digital media!
