Centerport FD Visits Washington Drive

Members of the Centerport Volunteer Fire Department visited students of Washington Drive Primary School for a lesson on the importance of fire safety. The visit gave the children an opportunity to discuss a variety of scenarios and responses with volunteer firefighters. Students also watched as the firefighters and kindergarten teacher Andrea Dini dressed into firefighter gear so as to alleviate any fears the young students may have about a firefighter’s outward appearance during an emergency.
Kindergarten students had an opportunity to sit inside the fire engine and familiarize themselves with the vehicle and the necessary equipment. They were then dismissed to their classrooms, where their new learning was further reinforced through class discussion.
