FIRE SCIENCE LESSON WITH CHAPEL HILL FIRE DEPARTMENT

Chapel Hill Fire Department conducted a virtual Fire Triangle demonstration on Facebook yesterday that was too good not to share. This is a wonderful way to incorporate science into your daily educational routine.

What’s the fire triangle, you ask?

The fire triangle, often used as a basic form of fire safety training in schools, is comprised of the three components needed to ignite and sustain a fire. It is comprised of a heat source, fuel (meaning anything that can burn), and oxygen.

By understanding the fire triangle, children and families can make smart decisions to prevent a fire from starting or to keep a fire from spreading in their homes.

Watch and enjoy the video… then I’ve got a few questions for you!

CHAPEL HILL FIRE TRIANGLE LESSON 

1: When all three components of the fire triangle combine, what happens?

2: How can you remove the heat from a fire?

3: How can you remove the oxygen from a fire? 

4: Where can you find oxygen?

5: What does a fire break do? 

More information on The Fire Triangle can be found here and here.

If you have more questions and fire safety and the fire triangle, feel free to put them in the comment section below or feel free to ask Emily in the comment section of the video.

Have a happy Friday!

Stay well, stay safe, and practice fire safety in and around the home!
