Burn Awareness Week, January 31st to February 6th, teaches kids how to be responsible for their personal safety, and increase family awareness of potentially harmful situations.
Sponsored by the BC Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn Fund, the Burn Awareness program is educational, fun and interactive, and includes a popular colouring contest. It is designed to be delivered in the classroom with age appropriate safety lessons for K-7. However, anyone can access the program, which includes burn awareness safety tip information, student activity sheets, quizzes, colouring pages, and animated videos. The program is available in PDF format for easy download and printing. To access poster contest rules and curriculum materials, click here.
