Fire Safety Academy at WPE
The Leadville-Lake County Fire and Rescue team came to West Park on Friday to teach our students all about fire safety and how community helpers make our world a safer place through engaging, hands-on activities.
All students received a gift bag with a fire hat, stuffed dalmatian(or brain eraser for 2nd graders), and educational activities. These complemented their sessions on: fire equipment (so that they would be familiar with the gear if they ever see a fireperson in an emergency it’s less scary), how a fire hose works, crawling underneath pretend smoke, escape routes out of homes and reuniting with families.
Students loved seeing these important community helpers! We are so grateful to LLCFR for their visit this morning! Thank you!
