The Children’s Safety Network eNewsletter serves as a forum for sharing information about child and adolescent injury and violence prevention. It provides weekly listings of events, news items, and reports on specific injury-related topics. The April 5 issue included new resources and tool kits for April’s National Child Abuse Month.
In addition, the newsletter’s fire and burn safety piece in this edition discusses NFPA’s Learn Not to Burn Preschool Program’s new smoke alarm lesson: “When You Hear a Smoke Alarm, Get Out and Stay Out.” The smoke alarm lesson includes objectives, background information for the teacher, three lesson plans that teach the behavior in different ways, two newly recorded upbeat smoke alarm songs in MP3 files, new art for coloring to go with the songs, and a letter to send home to parents.
