"After the Fire is Out: The Firefighter's Role in Preventing Child-Set Fires"
Cole, R., Crandall, R., Kourofsky, C.
Firehouse, October 2003

Members of the fire service need to understand their true value to the community.  You can do so much more than just put out fires.   You have an incredible opportunity to take advantage of "teachable moments."

"Do We Really Understand Curiosity Fires?"
Cole, R., Crandall, R., Kourofsky, C.
Firehouse, October 2002

Approximately two-thirds of fires set by children each year are "curiosity fires," fires started by children playing with fire who did not mean to cause any damage or harm. However, these fires do cause serious damage, injury and death and research has shown that they are not caused by curiosity. Ineffective fire prevention tactics often employed by adults based on this misconception are discussed and age appropriate, effective fire prevention lessons are provided.

"Fire Safety: Early Lessons Save Young Lives"
Cole, R., Crandall R., Kourofsky, C. 
Children and Families, Spring 2002

This article stresses the importance of teaching children, including young children, that fire is an adult tool. Practical advice is provided to help educators and childcare professionals work with their local fire departments to teach young children safety skills that could save their lives in a fire. The information provided is based on extensive research conducted by Fireproof Children in partnership with the Rochester Fire Department and BIC Corporation.

"You Can Prevent A Child's First Fire"
Kourofsky, C., Crandall, R., Cole, R.
Firehouse, September 2001

Most children who start a fire that requires fire department intervention never start another, yet the results of this single fire may be tragic. This article provides practical advice to help fire departments reach young, curious children before they set their first, and likely only, fire.
