FIRE CALLS: Niagara Falls fire reports published March 22

• NOTE: Unfortunately, many kids try to hide from fires, often in a closet, under a bed, or in a corner. But if they had been taught basic fire facts, they'd be better able to protect themselves. Teach your kids that fires spread quickly, that most fire-related deaths are not from burns, but from smoke inhalation and that dangerous fumes can overcome a person in just a few minutes. Children should learn to cover their mouths and noses with a moist towel or an article of clothing to keep out dangerous fumes while evacuating, crawl under the smoke to safety, staying as low to the ground as possible, touch any door (not the doorknob) to see if it is hot, and if it is, not to open it, never stop to take personal belongings or pets and never go back into a burning building once they are safely outside. They should also learn to stop, drop, and roll to extinguish flames if an article of clothing catches on fire.
