A family was camping and left their tent to go on a day hike. They were a few hours from their campsite when a storm suddenly blew up. They became disoriented in the wind and driving rain.

However, being experienced hikers, they knew once they were lost, it was best to stay in one place than wander in the woods, so they prepared to settle down and wait for rescue. Darkness fell, and the family built a fire to keep warm. Then, as they snuggled up against each other and started to drift off to sleep, they heard a noise coming from the trees. “Who’s there?” one of the parents called, but there was no answer. Then…

What to Do in a Fire Dear Friends, Fire drills are a big part of being safe in school: They prepare you for what you need to do in case of a fire. But what if there was a fire where you live?
