Colouring and workbooks can save lives

Count us in! Fire brings warmth, light and coziness - and yet it can become a life-threatening, destructive hazard! Especially our children's fascination with the flickering, exciting element of fire is repeatedly their undoing: when curiosity meets a lack of awareness of danger, accidentally caused fires, injuries and worse are the result.

How do you react when there is a fire? The Altenkirchen Fire Brigade Association together with K&L Verlag have set themselves the goal of answering this question in a way that is suitable for children and have published an easy-to-understand colouring and workbook for girls and boys of primary school age. We think: That' s a good thing!

That is why we support the project

<meta charset="UTF-8" />The memorable information, instructive tasks and lovely illustrations of the new fire safety book "Sicher mit Feuer und Flamme" (Safe with Fire and Flame) were developed in close cooperation with fire safety experts from the fire brigades. By working through it at home or at school, children can better understand and deepen the fire safety awareness and instructions for correct behaviour conveyed by the fire brigades.

Additional digital content such as videos or learning success checks, which are available with the help of the latest AR technology and a free app, also make the workbook an inspiring experience!

The innovative "Kinderfinder" stickers, which are distributed together with the book, can also save lives. In the case of an emergency, they show the fire brigade the way to the young family members who are particularly dependent on help and often hide in cupboards or under the bed in dangerous situations.

With the help of many local businesses, the workbooks can be handed out to primary school children free of charge. This is a commitment that we are very happy to support and forego sending Christmas cards for the good cause.
