Celebrate Fire Prevention Week this October with an engaging word search activity.

Kick-off Fire Prevention Week with a Word Search!

Get ready for Fire Safety Week with this fun and engaging Word Search! Start the week with this activity. Have students pay attention to detail and see if they can find all the words in each puzzle as they are introduced to National Fire Prevention week!
