Getting an Early Start on Fire Prevention

ELKP students visiting with Sudbury Firefighters!

October 18, 2011 - In preparation for Fire Prevention Week (Oct. 11-15), kindergarten students at Pius XII Catholic Elementary School recently received a visit from firefighters from the Minnow Lake fire station.

Students learned about fire safety, firefighters' protective equipment and explored the cabin of the fire truck.

They practisaid techniques such as "stop, drop and roll," and learned about the importance of fire detectors and evacuation plans.

Students also 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!"
