Firefighters gave students a tour of the firehouse, displayed the trucks and equipment, and taught them how to safety exit a burning building and how and when to call 911.
Students were also shown special equipment, such as the Jaws of Life and the hook and ladder truck, and given plastic firefighter hats and fire safety coloring books to take home.
They were reminded to check the batteries in the smoke and carbon dioxide
detectors in their houses, and urged to discuss everything they had learned
with their families.
