Why fire safety no longer teaches stop, drop and roll
It is taught, for good reason, in elementary school. This is part of an ongoing effort to teach children fire safety. Parents teach children to stay away from anything that is on fire, which is great. If you ever have clothing that catches fire, STOP where you are. DROP right down to the ground, covering your eyes and your mouth with your hands. ROLL back and forth, smothering the flames, not stopping until all the flames are out.

Children develop gross motor and listening skills as they learn about fire-safety measures and precautions. Talk with children about ways to keep safe in the event of a fire. Be sure to refrain from frightening children by describing scenarios that are too scary or dramatic. Step 1: On a clear sunny day, head outside to a grassy area. Play lively music for children to dance to. Invite children to dance until they hear the music stop. When they recognize the music has stopped, watch how quickly they can pause in place.
Each year more than 15, people are seriously burned when their clothes catch on fire. In more than half of the incidents, flammable liquids or vapors were present on, or around the person's clothing. But it can happen in many ways. A person's loose sleeve may catch fire on a hot stove. Someone may be working with gasoline or some other flammable liquid and then light a cigarette. They might spray lighter fluid on a smoldering barbecue fire and the resulting flames could catch their clothes on fire.
