Fire Prevention Week

October 10th-14th was Fire Prevention week at BHS for the elementary kids. During that week, the students learned about how to stay safe around a fire and how to not play with matches to start a fire. The fire department handed out stickers, pencils, and suckers to kids in 1st-3rd grade.

On Friday October 14th, the fire department put on an assembly for 1st-3rd graders to teach  them about fire safety. They showed the kids what a smoke detector sounds like, and what it means if it’s going off. Devin Benson modeled their bunker gear to show the kids what they look like, and to not be afraid of them.

“I hope they learn the hazards a fire can cause and when to take safety precautions,” says EMT Jessica Evans. “We want them to yell for help so it can help us locate them if they were ever in a structure fire.”
