Fire Safety Week

SKS Learns about Fire Safety

Each year students at Shell Knob Elementary School spend time learning about fire safety. During the week elementary students do a variety of activities in various classes on fire safety. Middle school students join in during the fire department visit to learn about the equipment and fire safety plans.

Central Crossing Fire Protection Department (CCFPD) visited the school on Thursday October 10, 2019. They set up a smoke room for students to move through and experience what a smoke filled room is like. As students experienced trying to move through smoke filled rooms, they learned how easy it is to get turned around and confused. They also learned the importance of having a plan for escape in the event of a fire. After their training, students toured the fire engine and the ladder truck. They learned about the different equipment used to save lives. The also learned about the care for the equipment and trucks.  At the end of their training, they received a small gift from the CCFPD.

We would like to thank the men and women who took time out of their busy day to teach the children about fire safety SKS. Thank you!
