October was fire prevention month. Every year the Monticello Fire Department pays a visit to the George L. Cooke Elementary School students to remind them about fire safety.

This year, the students saw all of the special gear that the fire fighters have to wear to keep them safe. The students also learned strategies to prevent fires and keep them safe during a fire such as Stop! Drop! Cover your face! & Roll! Some students were also able to practice it.

 We would like to thank the Monticello Fire Department for take time out of their busy days and teaching us about fire safety.
