Today, we had a special visit from the Sointula Volunteer Fire Department. Glen, Jason and Tyler talked to us about fire safety. We learned all about the importance of having a fire safety plan at home. The students will be bringing home a booklet you can use for making your plan if you don’t already have one. We also talked about smoke alarms (don’t forget to check them every month) and fire extinguishers.
The K/1/2/3s would like to share some fire safety tips with you:
Sierra-If you are on fire, Stop, Drop, and Roll and cover your eyes and mouth.
Storm-If you call, “Help, help!” they will come.
Hilary-Don’t hide or the firemen won’t know where you are. You should yell.
Caleb-Always test the smoke alarm.
Kaleigh-Don’t go near where the fire is.
Cherish-If there is a fire and there is no way to get out, feel the door and if it is hot just wait for the firemen.
Mackenzie-Remember to put wet stuff under the door, move away and cover you mouth and breathe through it.
Owain-Always have a fire safety plan.
Owen-Duck so the smoke doesn’t get near you.
Alexandra-Never leave your meeting spot.
Ava-Always, when there is a fire, be very careful because there might be fire in the house.
Mya-Check smoke alarms at least once a month.
Eli-Sometimes if the door is hot or blocked go out the window.
Star-Be careful in the kitchen.
Kaydan-Never ever pull the fire alarm at school unless there is a fire.
