Kindergartners at Washington Drive Primary School had an opportunity to explore the Centerport Fire Department’s firetruck and equipment during a fire prevention assembly on Oct. 15. 

Emergency responders taught the students important fire safety measures, such as stop, drop and roll, and stressed the importance of closing doors to prevent a potential fire from spreading. The children also learned to stay low, visible and near a window if they ever find themselves trapped in the house in the event of a fire. 

Additionally, students were encouraged to go home and ask their parents to check the batteries in their smoke detectors and to review their households’ safety plan in case of an emergency.
