Mom Holly Robinson-Peete is spreading the word about fire safety.

house on fire

Did you know that more people in the U.S. die in home fires per year than all natural disasters combined? And that kids 5 and under are twice as likely to die in a home fire?

According to a new Liberty Mutual survey, 84% of parents admit they don't frequently discuss fire safety with their children. But it's a discussion we all need to have with our kids ... because it can save lives.

To make sure your children are prepared, map out a fire escape plan and practice it again and again, both in daytime and nighttime.

Teach them rules they can easily remember, such as:

• Stay low and go

• Get out and stay out

• Firefighters are your friend, and you should never hide from them during a fire
