Helping Hugs Teddy Bear Program

The goal is to provide a teddy bear or other stuffed animal to each child involved at the scene of an accident or traumatic incident. A teddy bear is given to youngsters to relieve some of the trauma and confusion children experience when involved in car accidents, fires, or other traumatic situations. This makes the firefighter’s job a little easier by comforting the child and building a trust or bond with the child thus enabling a less-stressful and more thorough evaluation of the child’s injuries or comfort during a stressful situation.

Hot water burns like fire. Turn your hot water heater down to a comfortable temperature to prevent unnecessary scalds and burns. Always supervise children with water and teach them to turn on the cold water first, then the hot to make the water warm. Test bath water before putting children in to bathe.
