Fort Lewis Elementary principal Cindy Klimaitis shares these photos from Fire Prevention Week, which was Monday, Oct. 8 through Friday, Oct. 12, and says:
The Fort Lewis Fire Department came and all students got to go through the Fire Safety Truck. The truck simulates “smoke” and students got to practice climbing out a window. Students were given fire hats, pencils and fire station erasers. Students learned about stop, drop and how to roll out of bed if they see or smell smoke. The Fire Safety Truck has bedroom and a kitchen. The kids had a great time and it was a realistic way to experience what to do in a real home fire.
