Safety Tips for Educators

Sound Off Fire Safety Program 

Calling all teachers! 
It is always a great time to teach fire safety! As an educator, you work hard to help children and families prepare for a bright and challenging future. Teaching your students how to prevent fires and how to respond properly in a fire situation are skills your students will remember and practice throughout their lives. 

The Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Service is proud to be part of the “Sound Off” family --- an educational program created for second and third grade students that can be taught year-round. Sound Off is a standards-aligned curriculum with everything you need to teach fire safety. The program focuses on three key areas: 
  • Safety Sounds: Learn to recognize different smoke alarm sounds and what to do for each. 
  • Find the dangers: Spot potential fire safety dangers in the home and correct them. 
  • House Fire Escape Map: Do you know two ways out of every room? Have you done a Home Fire Drill? Learn how to identify your escape route to get out fast.
