Title: Teaching Fire Prevention
Authors: Anonymous
Issue Date: 1972
Publisher: Her Majesty's Stationery Office
Abstract: This is a handbook of suggestions for ways in which fire and fire prevention can be related to subjects normally included in the curriculum of general education for young people. Emphasis has been put on the practical aspects of fire prevention. Nevertheless a certain amount of theory has been included where it appears relevant and may assist an understanding of principles. The handbook is designed for use by teachers and others who, from time to time, are called upon to give advice and help on fire prevention. Its use should be adapted according to the needs of particular groups of students. The contents are arranged, by subjects, in the form of headings and sub-headings, to serve as reminders of the context in which particular considerations of fire prevention may be introduced. The passage on legislation is an exception to this plan. In most sections a separate column on each page gives sources for more detailed information. Further suggestions for reading matter may be obtained from the bibliography on pages 26 and 27. Suggestions for demonstrations and experiments are given at the end of the sections dealing with chemistry and physics. Fire and fire prevention can also be the subject of projects undertaken by those engaged in particular studies, notably those concerned with sociology and economics. The Home Departments would like to thank all those people who have helped in the preparation of this handbook and would welcome any comments and suggestions from teachers who have had occasion to use the guide or part of it, so that consideration may be given to incorporating new ideas into future editions.
