School Fire Education
I was just curious about how many of your dept. to fire education training for local schools. If so then what grades do you try to reach and what topics do you touch on.

We start them early with the 3 & 4 year old pre-schoolers teaching them Stop, Drop, Cover & Roll, Fire Escapes and Smoke Detector testing. We see the elementary school annually and work with a lot of Brownie and Cub Scout troops.
We try to get the kids so involved that they go home and show Mom or Dad what to do.Steve Dragon
