Dr. Burton Clark and his wife Carolyn Smith-Clark host another edition of Kitchen Table Chat.  Although the program is designed to engage the listener in discussion based on your call-ins, one of the areas they address is Fire Safety Education for Children.  They call attention to a new guide developed for the fire service on developing and creating fire safety and education materials produced by the Johns Hopkins Center for Injury Research and Policy and the National Fire Protection Association.

Some of the most important discussions take place at firehouse kitchen tables around the world.  Whenever firefighters get together for a meal, watch a ball game, have a meeting, drill on something, remember a lost friend, relive the fire, tell stories, say hello or good by, or just have cup of coffee the kitchen table is where the best discussions take place.

Our program is intended to be a virtual firehouse kitchen table. We will be sitting at the table just talking.  We do not know what we will be talking about, we do not know who will stop by to talk. There is a open invitation to 1.2 million firefighters and we are interested in what you have to say.

So stop by, the coffee is on the soda is cold; you never know who or what will be talked about at the Kitchen Table Chat.
