Fire Prevention Week
Volunteer firefighters and an EMT from the Phelps Fire Department visited Midlakes Elementary School to stress the importance of fire safety to students. Students got to try on protective coats and helmets and take a look inside the department’s Rescue Truck!
Students were told how to safely escape a house fire and reminded to always let an adult know if they spot unattended lighters or matches. Students were also given their own take-home fire helmet as part of the experience.
