Don't Play with Fire
Can you guess how many fires are started by kids every year...
2 or maybe 2000?
Every year, children start nearly 100,000 fires that hurt people and cause a lot of damage.
Playing with fire - lighters, matches
or candles - is a bad idea.

Hot Water Burns Like Fire
Set the temperature of your hot water heater between 120° and 130°F to prevent scalding burns. It is important to keep in mind that a full thickeness burn can occur after just 1 second of contact with water that is at 158° F. Even at 130°F, a full thickness burn can occur after 30 seconds of contact, but it takes 10 minutes of contact to get a full thickness burn if the water temperature is lowered to 120° F.
