Prevent child-caused fires
Last updated 2/21/2008 at Noon
Somewhere a child is about to learn the pain a match or lighter can cause.
The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection needs every adult’s help to prevent child-caused fires. Those who have young children can take the time to teach them that matches and lighters are tools, not toys.
Unlike cigarettes, matches do not come with a warning. Adults should always keep matches and lighters out of the reach of small children.
Remember, a match lasts only a few seconds but the scars can last a lifetime. Be fire safe, not sorry!...
