Teaching kids about fire safety, with guest Kara Judd, fire lieutenant, on Upstate's The Informed Patient podcast

Schoolchildren catch up on how to avoid burns, react to fires

Many kids now aged 5 to 8 never got the usual fire safety education at school during the pandemic. Trying to address this learning gap is Kara Judd, a fire life safety educator with the Clark Burn Center at Upstate, who discusses how to avoid burns and general fire safety. She is also a juvenile fire-setter intervention specialist and a lieutenant in the Cazenovia Fire Department. For tips and learning tools, she recommends the children's page of the National Fire Protection Association.
