Fire Safety – A Hot Topic

The Abraham Lincoln Pre-kindergarten Center celebrated Fire Prevention Week with a visit from the local Deer Park fire department. Students learned from fire and EMT professionals who spoke about fire safety and how to respond in case of a fire emergency.

Students learned to “stop, drop and roll” and how to navigate through a house filled with smoke. A firefighter, dressed in his equipment, showed students how the gear protects him from flames, and allowed them to handle certain materials. For the grand finale, students received a fire truck tour where they inspected the truck’s equipment and witnessed the power of the truck’s water hose.
