Firefighters Teach Fire Prevention in Old Town

Updated 11 months ago

Firefighters were the teachers Friday in Old Town.

It’s National Fire Prevention Week.

Old Town firefighters spent the week teaching kids the fundamentals of fire safety and prevention.

They lifted up the ladder of the truck for the kindergarten classes.

Older students were deemed “fire safety officials” at home.

Smoke detectors, calling 911, and kitchen safety were some of the topics covered.

The firefighters say they try to do presentations like this a couple times throughout the year.

“We come in here as much as we can. I think it’s a great thing. They all know who we are and what we do and know that it’s a safe face too if we see them out somewhere and they ever need help,” said Adam Martell, a firefighter at the Old Town Fire Department.

“They were great today. They really paid attention, they were engaged, and motivated, and interacting with the fire fighters and they make it so much more comfortable for the children in case they ever do have to have someone come to there home,” said Brenda Jackson, a fifth grade teacher at the school.
