Fire & Water - Cleanup & Restoration

Kids Playing Start a Fire in a Kailua-Kona Home?

3/5/2024 (Permalink)

Kids are putting sticks in a firepit. We restore fire damage 24 hours a day in Hawaii and Maui.

Aloha! Kailua-Kona locals trust our local Hawaii and Maui teams to restore their fire damage “Like it never even happened.” Kids are curious, so it is important to closely supervise them around the fire. Here are some tips from the National Fire Protection Association to prevent children from playing with fire:

  • Keep matches and lighters out of the reach of children, up high, preferably in a locked cabinet.
  • Closely supervise children, making sure that they are kept away from other fire sources, including lit candles, cigarettes, bonfires, and stoves.
  • Explain that fire moves very fast and can hurt as soon as it touches them. Tell them that this is why matches and lighters are tools for adults only.
  • Teach young children never to touch matches or lighters. They must tell a grown-up when matches or lighters are found.
  • Establish clear rules and consequences about unsupervised and unauthorized uses of fire
  • Be a good example! Always use fire sources — matches, lighters, candles, fireplaces, and campfires — in a safe manner. Never treat them as toys or children may imitate you.
  • Talk with children about what their friends or other children are doing with fire. What do they see online in video games, TV, movies, and social media? Teach them specific ways to resist the peer pressure to misuse fire.
  • Give praise for showing respect and age-appropriate responsible behavior toward fire.
