With National Fire Prevention week fast approaching - this year it takes place October 7-13, 2007 - and now is an ideal time to talk to kids about how to avoid causing fires, as well as how to keep safe should a fire occur. Mighty World Firefighter Diego offers these tips:

1.Never touch matches, candles or lighters. Make sure you tell an adult immediately if you see matches or a lighter in a room.
2.Don't cook alone.
3.Remind your parents to turn pot handles toward the center of the stove.
4.Never stick anything in an electric socket.
5.Never hang anything on a lamp, heater, or radiator.
6.Always let an adult know if there is any kind of smoke or fire in your house.
7.If there is a fire, get out fast.
8.Once you are out of the house, call 9-1-1 immediately.
9.In case of fire, develop an escape plan with your parents. Plan for two possible escape routes out of your house. Practice your escape plan with your parents several times a year.
10.Stay low to the floor when escaping a fire, as smoke rises and makes it difficult to see.
