The first thing to understand is that fire is a tool and not a toy. Kids should never play with fire and inform a trusted adult if lighters or matches are found in areas such as the home or school. The second portion is about 9-1-1 being dialed when you see a real emergency and a real emergency only. It is important to understand if you call 9-1-1 when there is not a real emergency, other people may not be able to receive the immediate help they need.
If you dial 9-1-1, you will most likely see a fire truck in your driveway because the fire department not only responds to fires but medical calls as well.
