Fire is not a toy! No one should play with matches, lighters, candles and the gas stove. Children are curious and naturally want to explore, but fire is dangerous. In this episode for the FDNY Smart Podcast for kids, FDNY Captain Michael Kozo and student co-host Chloe, a 4th Grader from Brooklyn, talk about the dangers of playing with fire and how we can all help keep our homes safe. We speak to Fire Marshal Bryan Waite about the innovative FDNY Youth Firesetters Intervention Program – a free program that works to educate and evaluate kids (under 13) who are engaging in fire play.
