Banneker Students Learn Summer Safety

Students at Benjamin Banneker Elementary School in Milford enjoyed a break from the classroom on Wednesday, June 3 as they were introduced to first responders during the first annual Kickoff to Summer Safety event. Hosted by School Resource Officer Bloodsworth, children met with Milford police officers, Carlisle firefighters, Emergency Medical Services and other members of several organizations including the United States Coast Guard and Delaware State Police. Each group educated students on the importance of their departments and how they relate to their every day lives as well as safety guidelines for students to remember during summer vacation

“Summer is coming up and a lot of this kids are going to be going on vacation or other places with their families and it is important to remember safety all year long, not just when they are in school,” said Officer Bloodsworth. “It is important to keep them educated and to give them a safe summer send off.”

 

 

Milford’s Cpl. Brandon Hammond and K-9 Eros along with Pfc. Timothy Webb and K-9 Henk, took time to talk with students about emergency services and introduced the kids to the role that they and their four-legged partners play in police service and investigation.

The Carlisle Fire Company shared their ladder truck and equipment with students as firefighters taught students about fire safety and prevention at home. Volunteer firefighters Brennon Fountain and Austin Gardner shared fire prevention and safety with students and urged them to ask their parents to check smoke detectors on a regular basis and create a fire escape plan in case of an emergency.

Principal of Benjamin Banneker Elementary, Dr. Bobbie Kilgore, was pleased to see the students learning so much about safety before summer break and was grateful for the time and attention that local first responders gave to the school. “A lot of our students will be active during the summer with family but also many times just with friends,” said Dr. Kilgore. “We want to give them instruction on safety at a young age so that they can be equipped with it over the summer.”
