As educators, we are preparing our students to become responsible citizens in society. Sometimes the topics we discuss with our students may save their lives. Teaching your students about safety is one such lesson. The words"stop, drop, and roll" come to mind. We hope that our students will never have to use this knowledge to save themselves or others. However, in the world we live in, you never know what will happen to our students once the leave our campuses. Finding resources this month to help teach fire prevention and fire safety can be time consuming. Try these with your students to help them learn the importance of learning fire safety.

Tito, the Firefighter / Tito, el bombero
This bilingual (English/Spanish) text has Spanish sprinkled in and, as each word is introduced, it is used from there through to the end of the book. There is also a vocabulary page at the end of the book.
Richie, a New York City firefighter or bombero, only speaks inglés, but he answers all calls for help. In any language, a good deed is still a good deed. When Tito grows up, he wants to be a bombero. He speaks both inglés and español. But he never dreamed his bilingual skill might actually help Richie and the other bomberos save the day!
