Activity Sheet Sample Graphic


Welcome Teachers!

Thank you for visiting the North Carolina Department of Insurance Fire Prevention Week website and for encouraging your students to protect their families from fire.

This year, our campaign is all about preventing kitchen fires. You'll find educational materials and tip sheets about how to keep the kitchen safe from the common causes of fire. You’ll also find materials that will help your students understand the importance of home escape planning.

Although this site was designed to be most appropriate for students in pre-Kindergarten through Grade 1, many of the activities can be adapted for older students as needed. Activity sheets and teaching tips can be downloaded below.

I hope these tools will help you teach life-saving lessons about fire prevention to North Carolina children during Fire Prevention Week and any time you have the opportunity. Please encourage members of your community to participate in the statewide fire drill with their families on Oct. 9.

Thank you for your service to North Carolina’s young people.
