Sparky the Fire Dog and Fire Safety

Friday, October 11, 2019

Fire Safety means the elementary school students received training on how to respond in the event of a fire emergency on Thursday, October 10, 2019. The Pecatonica Fire Department along with Sparky the Fire Dog, covered fire safety tips such as 1) checking doors to see if they are hot/cold before opening them, 2) staying low to the floor to avoid smoke inhalation during evacuation, and 3) establishing a meeting place in front of the house. The students also practiced fire drills throughout the week vacating their elementary school building classrooms to designated spots on the black top.
