Preschoolers Learn About Fire Safety!
Wed, November 5, 2014
As part of Fire Prevention Month, preschool students at High Point Elementary School learned about fire safety. The students spent a day in the classroom learning about the importance of smoke detectors in the home and how to safely get out of a burning building.
Students were taught the “Stop, Drop, and Roll” method in order to extinguish a fire on their clothing. After learning about fire safety, the students were able to meet real firemen. Members of the Washington County Fire Department visited the school to reiterate the importance of fire safety and what to do in case of a fire. The firemen showed the students their fire outfits and allowed them to handle some of the equipment they use when fighting fires. The children were also given a tour of the fire trucks and were able to look at the tools used to fight fires. When the firemen left, each child was given their very own packet of goodies and information to take home so they could share with their families the importance of fire safety.
