Fire safety was the lesson of the day for Ivan Green kindergarten students when members of the Ridge Culver Fire Department stopped in to share some tips.
Lieutenant Shane Metcalfe and Firefighter Jeff Serenati talked about the importance of having at least on working smoke detector, two ways out of the house and a meeting place that everyone goes to once they get out.
Serenati also put on his gear to show the students that even though he might look scary when he’s all covered up, he’s still the same person as before. This helps the kids realize that in case of an emergency the person who is trying to help them might be wearing all that equipment but there’s no need to be worried.
After that they all got to go outside to see the inside of the fire truck.
