Meerkat Safety Badge - Explain why and when you should stop, drop and roll.

Fire and flames (even small flames) can set your clothes alight. Always stay a safe distance from flames.

In case your clothes catch fire:

  • STOP! Stop where you are. Running and panicking will only make it worse.
  • DROP! Drop down to the floor, and cover your face with your hands.
  • ROLL! Roll over and over to put the flames out.

Afterwards, get help from a grown-up who will cool the burn and get medical help.
