On Oct. 9, the Kendall Fire Department educated Kendall students about fire safety.
PreK, kindergarten and first grade students learned about the equipment on a fire truck and worn by a firefighter. They asked questions of the firefighters and boarded an actual fire truck. They learned about fire safety and what firefighters do to help in emergencies.
Third graders walked to the Kendall Fire Hall for their fire safety lesson. Students were instructed on what to do in case of a fire in their homes. They put this information to use in the Orleans County “burning house simulator.” This is the second year these students had a chance to tour the safety simulator house provided by Orleans County. While staying low to the ground to avoid smoke inhalation, students practiced how to find the closest exit. They also learned the importance of having a family meeting point once they have exited a burning structure.
Fifth graders attended an assembly in the Auditorium. Kendall firefighters provided important information to students about fire safety and what to do in an emergency.
Kendall Elementary School is grateful for the men and women of the Kendall Fire Department and all they do to help their community.
