DE Fire School Visits Lulu Ross

The Delaware State Fire School brought a fun interactive fire safety presentation to LuLu Ross Elementary School students on October 17, 2012. The students learned many different aspects of fire safety prevention and tips and some even tried on the bunker gear in the relay for 3rd through 5th Graders. The 1st and 2nd graders rotated through different stations learning about information they need in case of an emergency and how to prevent it from happening. The children saw a firefighter in gear so they aren’t scared, learned what to say when calling 9-1-1 for an emergency, and identified hazards around the home to help their families stay safe. The 3rd, 4th, and 5th Graders got a brief overview of fire safety tips and were able to put their knowledge to the test in a fire safety relay. Each class competed for the best time and the winning class in each grade received medals. For the relay, the students had to put on a bunker coat, stop, drop, roll and cover their faces, call 9-1-1 and test a smoke alarm. One of the 3rd Grade classes had the fastest average time of 6.65 seconds per student! Everyone had fun and took away valuable lessons to help keep their families safe from fire.
