Pius Students Learn About Fire Prevention

Teachers Mrs Heaton and Mrs. Mantha's kindergarten students enjoyed interacting with local firefighters and touring the firetruck.

October 11, 2011 - In preparation for fire prevention week, early learning kindergarten students and staff at Pius XII school welcomed firefighters from the Minnow Lake fire station. Students learned about fire safety, firefighters' protective equipment and explored the cabin of the firetruck. They practiced techniques such as "stop, drop and roll" and learned about the importance of fire detectors and evacuation plans. ELK students enjoyed sitting in the driver's seat of the firetruck and many were overheard telling friends "when I'm older I'm going to be a firefighter too!"
