Fire Safety

Sunday, June 10, 2012
Students from Annunciation Angels Preschool 3- and 4-year-old class got a lesson on fire safety by local firefighters recently. According to Brazil Fire Chief Jake Bennett, the Fire Safety Class teaches children about stop, drop and roll, to not play with matches or lighters, what to do if they wake up in a smoke-filled house and escape plans -- among others. The children are also shown a video with important fire safety information and they have a discussion after on the important points of the video. The firefighters also show the children what firefighters look like in their gear and let them see some of the equipment like in the photo, where Bennett shows Vinny Staub how to spray water from a fire hose.
