The fire and rescue service understand that fire is part of everyday life and that many items that could cause a fire risk, are important to us. This writing-based lesson develops the understanding of how fires can be used safely (a good fire), or used carelessly when it can be dangerous (bad fire). The lesson will also reinforce the dangers of playing with matches and teach the importance of saying “No” when others want to play with fire.
