Fire Can Be Helpful

Fire can be helpful
When handled with care.
But fire and children
Do not make a pair!
So don't play with matches
Or anything hot.
Adults may use fire,
But children should not!

Fire Rap

If your clothes catch on fire,

Donít run or hop.

The thing you have to do

Is come to a stop.

Then drop to the ground,

The floor, the dirt.

Donít worry Ďbout the mess-

Keep from getting hurt.

When youíre down

Put your hands right over your face,

Then roll like a log all over the place-

To the left, to the right,

Till the flame is out.

And whenever you can, give a big shout!

It might be mighty-mighty scary,

But keep in control,

Youíll start being better

When you stop, drop, and roll!

Five Little Firefighters

Five little firefighters all in a row,

One, two, three, four, five they go!

Hop on the engine with a  shout,

Quicker than a wink, the fire is out!

Five Little Firefighters

Five little firefighters

Sleeping in a row.

RING goes the bell!

Down the pole they go.

They jump on the engine,

And put out the fire.

Now theyíre back home-

My, but they are tired!


Smoke Chant

If you donít want to choke,

Crawl under the smoke.

Get down on the floor

And head for the door!  




(Tune: Eensy Weensy Spider)

The firefighter helps us learn our safety rules.
Playing with matches is only for fools.
If you see a fire, "help, you'll scream and shout!" Dial 911.
The firefighter will put it out

Twinkle Twinkle Traffic Light 

(tune of twinkle little star)

twinkle twinkle traffic light
standing on the corner bright
when its green its time to go
when its red its stop you know
twinkle twinkle traffic light
standing on the corner bright


Four Busy Firefighters

Four busy firefighters could not retire
Because they might have to put out a fire.
The first one rang a big brass bell.
The second one said, 'It's the Grand Hotel!'
The third one said, 'Down the pole we'll slide.'
The fourth one said, 'Get ready to ride.'
The siren said, 'Get out of the way!'
We have to put out a fire today!'
The red fire truck sped on to the fire,
As the big yellow flames grew higher and higher.
Swish, went the water from the fire-hose spout
And in no time at all the fire was out.
