Bleckley Pre-K Celebrates Fire Prevention Week 2017
Since 1922, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has sponsored Fire Prevention Week. The 2017 Fire Prevention Week is October 8 - 14, and the theme is "Every Second Counts: Plan 2 Ways Out!"
In celebration of this week, Firemen Kyle Dykes, Jonathan Leatherwood, and David Sumner of the Cochran Fire Department visited Bleckley Pre-K and provided students with important fire safety information. Students had the opportunity to see the fire truck up close, see a demonstration of how the equipment is used, see the firemen in their firefighting uniforms, and learn fire safety tips to keep them safe in the event they are the victim of a home or school fire.
Bleckley Pre-K appreciates the Cochran Fire Department and Firemen Dykes, Leatherwood and Sumner for partnering with them to help students learn the importance of smoke detectors, fire safety habits, getting out as quickly as possible, and staying out of a burning building.
