Fire Safety Program

Montessori School – Worton

Monday, October 5, 2020


With October being Fire Safety Month, Monday morning members visited the Montessori School to say hello and talk about fire safety. Chief John “Otis” Darling was our main representative and presenter. We talked about calling 9-1-1 in an emergency, what to do when the smoke alarm goes off, fire drills in school and at home. We also talked about “Stop, Drop & Roll” if clothing catches on fire. We also gave a short tour of the engine and some of the equipment we carry.


We had Firefighter Charles Willis, Jr. put on his protective gear, including an air pack, to show the children what we look like and sound like when we're fully suited up. Then, with close attention and supervision, the children had the opportunity to work the operating lever on the rescue spreader. While some children didn’t want to try it, it was a great hit with others. Many thanks to the teachers and staff for inviting us out to meet the children, talk about fire safety, and tell them a little bit about what we do. We then answered questions and listened to stories the children shared. When we left, we provided a little light and sound show.
