Your babysitter's first priority should be your children's safety. Entrusting your children to the care of a babysitter is a major responsibility.
Children don't understand the danger of playing with matches and lighters. Learn how to help them understand and what to do if their clothes catch on fire.
Check your home for fire hazards. Know exactly what to do and where to go if there is a fire. Prepare by learning how to avoid injuries when cooking or smoking.
Knowing what to do in case of fire may save your life. Talk to family, friends, neighbours, and building supervisory staff about your special needs in an emergency.
