Why children should keep their bedroom doors closed at night
Many children like sleeping with their doors open in fear of the boogeyman hiding under there bed. However this picture shows why it is so important for bedroom doors to stay shut at night time. A shut door can keep out smoke and eventually fire and save a life.
- Routine at home fire drills are a great way to keep your kids ready and aware. Kids practice them at school, why wouldn't you teach them at home?
Stop, Drop, and Roll is universal. Also teach them to stay low, and how to check with the back of their hand to see if a door is warm. Pick an easy place outside like the swing set for everyone to meet.

-Smoke alarms should be in every bedroom and properly maintained.
