Meadowbrook Elementary School students learned valuable fire safety tips from local firefighters during the school’s annual fire prevention program.

Gathered in the cafeteria, the firefighters discussed the importance of having working smoke and carbon monoxide alarms in their homes, establishing an escape route and creating a designated meeting location with family, as well as assisting firefighters when they arrive to the scene.

Following the presentation, students were able to examine the equipment on fire trucks and learn about the tools firefighters use to extinguish fires.
