We at Firefighter Dan™ hope everyone is having a great 2012. We are having a blast. We have completed several Safety Tips already this year and also have a nice collection of 'Funsheets' for the little ones.
FIREFIGHTER DAN'S SAFETY TIPS
What's HOT and What's NOT
This is the second Firefighter Dan's Safety Tip. We are building on what was taught in the first Safety Tip. Know what things are hot and stay away from them.
This is the third installation of Firefighter Dan's Safety Tips. A faucet can give you hot, warm and cold water. But it is best that you let a grownup turn the water ON and OFF for you just to be safe.
DAILY ILLUSTRATED SAFETY TIP WORKSHEETS
More 'Funsheets' to go with our Safety Tips. Here are couple more links for the little ones out there. (click to enlarge)

ABOUT FIREFIRE DAN™
Firefighter Dan™ features a safety curriculum that helps kids 2-6 recognize, reduce and escape hazards while helping to develop numeracy, literacy, art, science, history, reasoning and citizenship. By utilizing all types of media: photographs, video, illustration, animation and an interactive format that creates viewer participation, Firefighter Dan™ will engage children to be confident, active, and helpful members of the community.
Firefighter Dan™ will be featuring Safety Tips and other content here on Firelife.com as well as on FirefighterDan.com. Each of our Safety Tips will be a short animation between 60 and 90 seconds. We believe by keeping the content in short bytesize chunks of information, a child will be able to better digest the information. In addition, we will be sharing 'behind-the-scenes' to The Firefighter Dan™ Show as we move forward in production.
