title

By Lisa Braxton

It’s called the Fire Spray Challenge, a viral trend in which teens use aerosols and lighters to create streams of fire, and record their reactions for Snapchat or Instagram videos. According to the New York Daily News, there have thus far been more than 4,000 Instagram posts using the hashtag #firespraychallenge. The first known Fire Spray Challenge video was uploaded in mid-March.

Fire and Life Safety Educators looking to make presentations to parents and caretakers to help curtail this highly dangerous activity can turn to NFPA’s 60-minute lesson plan on the Fire Challenge, another extremely dangerous activity popular among some teens. The lesson plan, The Fire Challenge: A Conversation with Parents & Caretakers, provides step-by-step guidance for making a 60-minute presentation, including a list of suggestions for exciting, yet safe activities as an alternative, information on addressing teen risk-taking in the age of social media, an explanation of biological characteristics that impede responsible decision making, and ways to open the lines of communication.
