Kindergarten learns to "Get out & stay out!"

A visit from the Hometown Fire Department

Firefighter TJ showed these students how to be fire safe.

October is fire prevention month, and in conjunction with community helpers week, the Kindergarten class received a visit from firefighter TJ of the Hometown Police Department.  On October 5, 2022, firefighter TJ made a guest appearance to teach these students the importance of fire safety.  The students learned how to create a family meeting place, how to "Get out and stay out!" when there is a fire, and how to Stop, Drop and Roll.  Students were also given to chance to hear different noises they may hear during a fire.  For example, if you are in a fire and a firefighter is trying to rescue you, they may have a loud alarm that goes off.  Students were shown this alarm and told not to be scared.  Firefighter TJ also dressed in his full gear to show students there is nothing to be afraid of.  He is still the same guy under the coat, mask and hat.  These little ones are now ready to "Stay low and go" if there is ever a fire!
