Fire prevention week kick off

News

It may be one of the most important lessons you can teach your child.
What to do in case of a fire.

Nathalie Gomez reports on a special classroom visit during fire prevention week.
“Try to go where the fire isn’t and try to run outside,” said 2nd grader Nicholas Gauss.

“Go outside and meet somewhere,” said 2nd grader Penelope Morales 

This is the advice preschool through second grade students at Bishop Ryan Catholic School received as the Minot Fire Department paid them a special visit. 


“The firefighters teach kids how to solve a fire and what to do,” said Gauss.

It’s all part of starting the conversation of prevention and safety.

“If we can prevent them before they start we’re way ahead of them game,” said Stuart Hammer with the Minot Fire Department. 

Although the puppets and the kids are a cute site, the message being taught goes deeper. 

“They might pick up on some cues and pick up some different hints and something they do might prevent the fire that we didn’t even know about,” said Hammer.

Hammer says adults at home should check fire alarms monthly, look out for your home as well as your neighbors and make efforts to learn about fire prevention.

“And taking the time to work with the kids to do fire drills at home where the kids spend majority of there time,” said Hammer.

As Fire prevention weeks continues the phrase you should keep in mind –

Look, listen, learn fire can happen anywhere. 

The Minot Fire Department will hold a tailgate kick off party on Saturday October 6th in order to raise more awareness about fire prevention.
