LET’S TALK ABOUT FIRE SAFETY
October is one of my very favorite months. It usually signals the end of hot weather and the beginning of cozy sweaters, pumpkin spice everything, the beauty of the changing leaves, and the promise of holiday celebrations right around the corner! October is also fire safety month. Do you have a fire safety plan in place for your family? If not, NOW is the time to establish fire safety protocols with your household. This year, the National Fire Protection Association’s campaign is focusing on fire safety in the kitchen. Did you know that cooking is the number one cause of home fires and home fire injuries? Click on the link below for some great fire safety tips and information to help keep you and those you love safe in the kitchen. We care about YOU!

I am Tammi Nelson, a Parent Educator with Parents as Teachers in Grandview. I am the mother of three beautiful adult children and have been married to my husband Ken for almost thirty years. My degree is in elementary education, and I have worked as an elementary teacher as well as a preschool special education paraprofessional before becoming a Parent Educator. This career is a dream come true for me, as I have a special place in my heart for parents of young children and a deep desire to partner with them to make sure the family is healthy and thriving.
