Let's face it, you've heard and read about the need for fire safety, and you've seen the deadly effects of fire almost every night on television or read about it in newspapers. You may even be familiar with statistics on fire losses and the toll in deaths and disfigurements which fire causes. But it is someone else who suffers, someplace else which burns. . . not you or your family or property. Yet, if you are a parent reading this booklet, the chances are that someday you will have to deal with a fire in your home and you may have to do it alone, or with infants or older children. If you or someone in your family is a smoker, that person someday may be careless and start a fire. . Fire is not as impersonal as it seems, not as distant as it appears
