As a part of the annual Fire Safety Week, our community fire fighters spent much of their day talking with our students, demonstrating, and answering their questions. We would like to thank these Fire Department volunteers for coming to Taft School for Fire Prevention Month. The children learned a lot and we appreciate all they do for the community.

Dial 911 for help. Don't touch matches or lighters. Move out of the way when you hear a fire truck's siren. If there is fire on your body, STOP, DROP and ROLL and cover your face. Get out of your house and meet your family at the meeting place.
Practice fire drills at home. Yell for help if there is a fire and you can't get out of your house. Get out of your house and meet your family at the meeting place you decided on. Dial 911 for help. Don't ever touch matches or lighters.
Check to see that your smoke detector works. Dial 911 from a neighbor's house if there is a fire in your house. Keep your bedroom door closed. Feel the door with the back of your hand to make sure it is not hot. Stay low where there is better air to breathe if there is smoke in the house.
911 is the number we should call for help. Keep pot handles inside so you do not knock it over. If smoke is coming through the door, block it with blankets. Feel the door with the back of your hand to make sure it is not hot.
Stop, drop and roll on the ground if your clothes catch on fire. Keep your bedroom clean and make sure toys are off the floors so the firemen don't trip on them. After you meet at your meeting spot outside, then call 911 for help. Know your name, address and phone number so the firemen know where to go. Practice fire drills at home.
Remember that October is Fire Prevention Month. Keep your precious ones safe by reviewing Fire Safety Rules. Thank you for helping us learn about the importance of fire saftey!
