Students Learn Fire Safety at Williams Elementary School

[slideshow_deploy id=’66315′]

In honor of National Fire Prevention Week, the Williams Fire Department visited Barbara Mayberry’s Transitional Kindergarten class at Williams Elementary School on Tuesday, October 7, 2014.

Students learned how to ‚ÄėStop, Drop and Roll‚Äô from WFD Cadet Ben Mays, and they learned what to if there is a fire in the home.

Each student was given the opportunity to see the tools and safety gear the firefighters use; several students tried on a fire helmet and jacket.

Outside of the classroom, the students were treated to a close-up tour of a real fire truck.

‚ÄúStudents were shown all the safety and emergency tools and firefighting equipment,‚ÄĚ said Mayberry, ‚Äúeach student was able to hold a nozzle and watch as water was pumped out the hose and sprayed into the street.‚ÄĚ

Students also watched as the firefighters demonstrated an emergency simulation involving a backboard.

‚ÄúIt was a favorite among the students,‚ÄĚ said Mayberry, ‚Äúclassmate James Velazquez volunteered to be the injured victim.‚ÄĚ

Soon the Williams Fire Department Team was dispatched to a real emergency and students watched as the men quickly gathered up their gear, climbed into the truck, and sped away with lights flashing and sirens sounding.

Each student received a fire helmet, a firefighter badge sticker, a fire safety coloring book, and information to take home and share with their families.

Ms. Mayberry and her students would like to thank the volunteers for their time and patience.

‚ÄúFor the students, this is one of the best days of the school year!‚ÄĚ Mayberry said.
