Fire Safety at FVES!

Firefighter Protective Gear!

On Friday, October 24th, members from the local Fairview Fire Department came to Fairview Elementary to give fire safety tips to all students in grades K-5. Jody Mills set up the program and brought fire fighter friends, Captain Brown and Luke Burnette to help present.

Fire prevention and safety tips were discussed, students were given instructions on how to protect themselves and escape from a fire, teachers and students were chosen to demonstrate the "stop, drop, and roll" technique, and firefighter safty gear was shown (from helmet to steel toed boots).

All students received fire safety materials to take home to share with their parents.  Thank you to these men for taking time out of their busy schedule to help educate our students!
