Ann MacArthur Primary School students visited the Locust Valley Fire Department during Fire Safety Month for a reminder of fire safety tips. The members of the fire department welcomed the students with open arms, showing them the apparatus used in emergencies and sharing a child friendly film on fire safety that had a catchy tune the children were singing along with. Juice and cookies were an added bonus and the children and teachers were grateful for the hospitality.
Thank you to the members of the Locust Valley Fire Department for reinforcing the concepts of having an emergency plan, a meeting place, staying low to the ground and so much more. The children will definitely remember to call 9-1-1 in an emergency!
