This durable vinyl vest was designed by a veteran fire safety officer and is used to teach children Stop, Drop, and Roll, which is a simple technique to extinguish a fire on a person's clothes or hair. In addition to extinguishing the fire, it is an effective psychological tool, providing children in a fire situation with a routine that can be focused on in order to avoid panic. The steps are simple: STOP where you are, DROP to the floor or ground, and ROLL over and over until the fire goes out. When used in a classroom on carpeting, the fire is snuffed out when the flames stick to the carpet (thanks to Velcro!). A great tool for fire prevention week in October.
The vests are backed with a 5 year warranty. Instructor's guide included. $40 per vest. Stop, Drop, and Roll 3-inch stickers are also available for $29 per roll for 500 of them and are a great reminder for the kids to STOP, DROP, and ROLL.
