Fire Prevention with Fireman Chris

Fire Safety With Fireman Chris on PhotoPeach
Every year we are lucky enough to have Fireman Chris come to talk to the children about fire safety. He brought with him all of his equipment and a slide show of the various fires he has experienced. The main focus was centered on having the children see how different he looks with his firefighting equipment on and not to be afraid. The fact is that many youngsters may hide during a fire if they see and hear someone that looks scary - which is the way a child sees a fireman with his gear on. After the presentation, Fireman Chris read a book about fire safety. The students loved having him visit and so did we. Thanks again Fireman Chris for taking the time to teach our kindergarten students about fire safety.

I couldn't believe the "fire facts" James came home repeating after Fireman Chris visited your class! He talked about it all afternoon. Chris clearly made a memorable impression. Thank you Fireman Chris!

I truly enjoy showing the young (and the young at heart) what actually goes on inside a burning building. An ounce of prevention can go a long way. Thank you for clearing some time on the calendar for me to come into the classroom and discuss fire safety with the kids. Stay safe Mall-ards, and remember to never play with matches or lighters.

What great knowledge to receive from Fireman Chris. Thank you to Mrs. Mallon, Mrs. Dilliard and Chris for making fire safety a priority!

Mall-ards and Fireman Chris are "on fire"! It's nice to be reminded about the batteries in the smoke detectors and having an exit strategy.

Bryn loved listening to Fireman Chris about fire safety especially since her daddy is a fireman too :) Thanks to Fireman Chris for taking the time to teach such important information and thanks Mall-ards for all you do each & every day!
