The 1st Grade Program will cover the reasons why someone should call 911 along with other safety messages from Sioux Falls Fire Rescue and Avera's Family Life Educators.  The program consists of a short fun video going over the reasons for calling 911 and then we will have time for questions.  The planned time for this program is between 20-25 minutes and it is virtual.  You will need to use your laptop and smartboard for this lesson.

The Fire Safety House will come to your school for a fun hands on interactive lesson to teach 3rd graders the importance of having a fire escape plan.  The simulation will have the students in a safe environment where they experience fake smoke filling a room and setting off a smoke alarm.  The students then are required to exit the house safely.  The lesson is about 20-25 minutes per section and each section should be ready to participate after one section completes the lesson.  

Classes are encouraged to watch the video that will be sent to each school before partaking in the hands on portion.

 

Please include in the notes how many sections will be participating, so we can plan accordingly.

The famous Kindergarten Puppet Show teaches important fire safety topics through fun songs and of course puppets!  The program covers what kids should do if they find matches or lighters,in addition to stop, drop and roll, and crawling low under smoke.  The show will also cover how hot water can burn kids and how to check the bath water temperature.  The show has added some fun new additions including a portion where two random kids are selected and race to put on real firefighter gear (kid's size)!  The entire program takes about 45 minutes and will need to be in a large area to accomodate all of the kindergarten sections (one show per school).  Sioux Falls Fire Rescue and Avera Family Life Educators look forward to meeting you and your students!
