Guidance for parents, teachers and carers

Each year more than 500 children are injured and 11 are killed in fires in the home in England. Helping children understand how to prevent fire and how to act if there is a fire is a vital step towards reducing the risk fire poses to children.


Education packs are available for nursery children, which upon request can be delivered to nurseries should they wish to cover home fire safety education.

Lesson plans for Key Stage 2 children can be accessed from the links below as required.

Juvenile fire-setters scheme

This scheme was introduced to reduce the risk of fire-setting behaviour in our community. The aim is to change the behaviour of young people who engage in antisocial behaviour and fire-setting. The scheme is designed to curb fire-setting behaviour by educating and supporting children and their families.
