Fire Safety Poems and Songs

Five Little Firefighters
Five little firefighters all in a row,
One, two, three, four, five they go!
Hop on the engine with a  shout,
Quicker than a wink, the fire is out!


Fire Rap

If your clothes catch on fire, don’t run or hop.
The thing you have to do is come to a stop.
Then drop to the ground, the floor, the dirt.
Don’t worry ‘bout the mess- keep from getting hurt.
When you’re down put your hands right over your face,
Then roll like a log all over the place- to the left, to the right,
Till the flame is out.
And whenever you can, give a big shout!
It might be mighty-ighty scary, But keep in control,
You’ll start being better
When you stop, drop, and roll!


Five Little Firefighters

Five little firefighters
Sleeping in a row.
RING goes the bell!
Down the pole they go.
They jump on the engine,
And put out the fire.
Now they’re back home-
My, but they are tired!



Fire Can Be Helpful
Fire can be helpful
When handled with care.
But fire and children
Do not make a pair!
So don't play with matches
Or anything hot.
Adults may use fire,
But children should not!
by Pauline C. Peck

"I Found Matches!" (Sung to "Skip to my Lou")
I found [matches] what do I do?
I found [matches] what do I do?
I found [matches] what do I do?
Tell me what to do!

Give them to a grown-up that's what I'll do!
Give them to a grown-up that's what I'll do!
Give them to a grown-up that's what I'll do!
Give them to a grown-up!

*replace matches with lighter for 2nd verse


9-1-1
(Sung to "Frere Jacques")
There's a fire! 
There's a fire!
9-1-1! 
9-1-1!
Call the fire department!  
Call the fire department!
9-1-1! 
9-1-1!


Stop, Drop, and Roll!
(Sung to "Farmer in the Dell")
Stop, Drop, and Roll
Stop, Drop, and Roll
If your clothes should catch on fire,
Stop, Drop, and Roll
