Fire Prevention Week

October 5-11 was Fire Prevention Week. We enjoyed an assembly from the Port Orange Fire Department on Monday. We sang song and talked about what to do in case of a fire. In class we talked about the importance of firefighters in our community. We brainstormed a list and made a book to let them know how much we appreciate their hard work! Families were encouraged all week to work on their fire escape plans and hand them into the local fire station on Thursday night. I took Kaile and Carson Thursday night to hand in their plan. The firefighter gave Kaile and Carson a cool water bottle and some other goodies. I gave the firefighter our class book and he told us he would share it with all the firefighters. He loved it! Vincent and David were especially proud of their pages since their dads put their life on the line everyday they go to work as one is a Fire Marshall and the other is a Fire Chief. Remember to practice your escape route at least once and month and change the smoke detector batteries when you change your clocks-which will be soon.! :)
