Children and Fires from Lighters and Matches in Noble
Educate Your Children About the Risks Associated with Playing with Fire
Fires and property damage associated with children who played with matches are commonly seen in the United States. Several procedures and programs have been made to control the problem, but in the past few years, a new source of ignition, the cigarette lighter, has become very common.
The increase in the use of lighters instead of matches has raised the chance for lighter-related fires and fire damage caused by children to homes in Noble. There also seems to be a change in the age distribution. In many cases, younger children are more frequently involved in these accidents because of the ease of igniting lighters.
SERVPRO can come to your aid if your child has gotten a hold of a lighter and caused a fire in your home. With our experience and training, our technicians can repair damages and clean up dangerous smoke and soot.
Children naturally have a curiosity about fire, as it captures their attention. Watching adults light a cigarette or start the barbecue, kids want to mimic them as they do with most things. You should not discourage your child’s curiosity about fire. However, you should channel it into appropriate behavior.
Due in large part to their experimentation with fire, children are at a high risk for burn injuries. They do not necessarily appreciate the correct use of matches, and many times misuse them. They need to understand that large fires begin small, and know the proper use for lighters and matches. You should also make sure they understand the dangers and risks that are associated with their use.
At SERVPRO, we understand how devastating a fire can be, no matter how small. Once the fire is out, your property needs cleaning up and repairs not only from fire, but from water from firefighting efforts, plus smoke and soot cleanup.
