 Have a escape plan and a common meeting place.  We use the acronym EDITH (Exit Drills In The Home).  Talk to your parents where to meet.  Bartow Fire Department's biggest concern is your safety.  We recommend that you and your parents go to the front of your home near the mail box, front of the drive way or a tree.  This way we ensure everyone is safe.  EDITH
 Don't play with matches  NEVER play with matches or lighters.  If you find one of them tell your parents or a well known trusted adult.
 When stuck inside remember to stay low at all times.   By crawling under the dangerous layers of smoke and heat.  This technique will keep you safe!!!  Crawl low under smoke
 Stop Drop and Roll  If your clothes catch fire remember to STOP DROP and ROLL!!! 
 Smoke Detectors are very important to your home.  They don't sleep so you can.  Smoke Detectors keep you very safe and will alert you if a fire is detected.  Remember to remind your parents to change the batteries in your smoke detectors every six months or when the time changes.  Smoke Dectector
