Welcome to the Hudson Fire Departments Kid's Page.
Below you will find a coloring sheet, a word search, and a few fire safety tips.
What would you do if your clothes started on fire?
Stop, Drop and Roll to extinguish a clothing fire.
Cool a burn. For minor burns, run cool water immediately over the burn.
Seek emergency medical help immediately for more serious burns.
Crawl Low Under Smoke
Heat and poison gases will rise to the top of a room. If you stay low, you will be able to get out safely.
Matches and Lighters are Not Toys
In a child's hand, matches and lighters can be deadly. Use only child-resistant lighters and store all matches and lighters up high, where small children can't see or reach them, preferably in a locked cabinet. Teach your children that matches and lighters are tools, not toys, and should be used only by adults or with adult supervision. Teach young children to tell a grown-up if they find matches or lighters; older children should bring matches or lighters to an adult immediately.
