Education: Stop, drop and roll
Here you'll find resources to teach the importance of 'Stop, drop and roll' to children.
Stop, drop and roll
[Background noise of a fire engine siren as the doors of a fire station open]
Alex: Hi, my name is Alex.
I'm a firefighter here at Crownhill Fire Station on Blue Watch.
As we haven't been able to come out and do school visits this year, we thought we'd deliver this short video on what to do if your clothes were to catch fire.
The three things we need you to do are:
- To STOP whatever you are doing
- DROP to the floor and cover your face
- ROLL three times each way until the flames are extinguished.
I will demonstrate this now.
[Alex lies on the ground and covers his face. He then rolls over and over sideways like a log to one side before rolling back the other way.]
Alex: Thank you for watching.
