Lampeter Elementary School Hosts Fire Safety Day with Local Fire Companies
Kindergartners climb aboard the grounded bucket of Willow Street Tower 50.
Fire trucks fill the Lampeter Elementary School parking lot.
Students learn about about planning a family meeting place in the case of a fire.
Willow Street firefighters talk about what information kids should know when calling 911.
Kindergarteners take a tour of the Refton fire engine.
On October 25, members of four local fire companies spent the day at Lampeter Elementary School for the yearly Fire Safety Assembly. The special day coordinates with elementary fire safety curriculum and National Fire Prevention Month.
Lampeter Fire Company, Refton Fire Company, Strasburg, and Willow Street Fire Company each sent trucks and personnel for a day of fun and educational opportunities. Students spent time outdoors touring and learning about rescue and ladder trucks, including the 100-foot-tall (willow street ladder). Inside, firefighters spent time sharing fire safety tips, demonstrating gear, and answering questions. All four fire companies are staffed fully by volunteers.
Thank you, firefighters, for taking time with us and for keeping us safe!
