Fire alarms can be a very intense sensory experience that can be difficult for some children. This social story will prepare your child with the steps of what to do during the event of a fire alarm going off at school, and offer affirmation for the feelings they may have about the situation. This social story includes 8 versions of the same story that covers girl and boy illustrations of 4 different ethnicities. It can also be customized for the needs of your child.
Some parts of the story:
- The fire alarm means that there might be a fire in the building. When it goes off, everyone needs to leave the school and go outside!
- Most of the time, the fire alarm will go off when there isn’t a fire. This is called a fire drill, and it’s important to do them so that we know how to be safe.
- When I hear the fire alarm, I will stop what I’m doing and listen to my teacher.
