Babysitting is a job many people take for granted. When parents call and ask you to "sit" in their place with their children, they are telling you that they trust you to be as responsible as they are for the safety of their children. It's a big job! It certainly should be enjoyable, but it needs to be safe and responsible as well. In many instances, you are in a strange house for the first time and are unfamiliar with the house layout and the information that becomes vital in an emergency.
Discuss the following points with the parents before they leave the house. Have the parents fill out the fire safety checklist. Carry it in your pocket until they return.
