Preschool children are at high risk of being hurt or even dying as a result of unintentional injuries.
 
 
The Seattle Fire Department has developed a comprehensive Preschool Safety Program aimed at children ages three to five years.
 
For over 50 years, the Seattle Fire Department has provided fire safety education to students in both public and private Seattle schools. 
 
This tradition continues today with a variety of fire and life safety programs for teachers and students.
 
Providing fire safety education, injury prevention messages and positive community role models are the goals of the School Age Program.  
 
   
This October, the Seattle Fire Department is hosting a series of events for children and families to celebrate Fire Prevention Month. 
 
Fire and injury prevention programs are especially important because preschool children are at high risk of being hurt or even dying as a result of unintentional injuries.  MSNBC recently conducted a investigation that highlights the importance of teaching young children about the dangers of matches and lighters.
 
                      

On FRIDAY, OCTOBER 2, 2009, the Seattle Fire Department and the Museum of History and Industry are celebrating Fire Prevention Month!
