Kindergartners Learn About Fire Safety During Fire Prevention Week

Posted: Updated:

Students at one Northern Michigan school learned the basics of how to stay safe during a fire in light of fire prevention week.

One of Manistee Catholic Central's kindergarten classes sharpened their fire skills on Tuesday.

James Henderson of the Manistee Fire Department gave the kids a fire safety presentation. He taught the kids a number of basic tips including what to do it they can't get out of their room during a fire. The biggest message was to show the kids what they look like in their uniforms so they don't get scared and hide when they need to be rescued.

The Manistee Fire Department makes school visits to grades kindergarten through six. The department says its important to start an early age so the children can build a strong foundation.

9&10's Breelynn Martin and Photojournalist Jeff Blevins were there for the presentation.
