Chase students learn about fire safety during Fire Safety MonthStudents and fireman

November 30, 2011

Each year, the faculty, staff and students of Chase Elementary School observes Fire Safety Month -- and this year was no exception.

The faculty and staff joined forces with the Wurtsboro Fire Department to teach the students about fire safety and how to react in an emergency. Local firemen visited Chase to demonstrate their firefighting equipment. Students were able to explore three different fire trucks and learn about the various tools firemen use to save lives.

During a school assembly, Wurtsboro Fire Chief Dustin Graham awarded prizes to the winners of the annual Fire Safety Poster contest. The winner received a smoke detector or a certificate.

The Chase community appreciates the dedication of the Wurtsboro Fire Department to keep our children safe at school and home.
