An effective method of educating junior high : aged children in fire and burn safety without disruption of the school curriculum.
A 2-hour educational seminar focusing on fire and burn safety issues was developed, presented, and evaluated by the fire department.
The eighth-grade class at a local junior high school was selected for the pilot site for the seminar.
A pretest and posttest were developed to measure the informational gain and retention of learned material to the students.
Test results showed a statistically significant improvement in burn and fire safety scores of the tested children.
