The Fairmount Fire Company visited with Kindergarten and First Grade Students at OFRS today to discuss fire safety. We learned about the importance of fire escape plans, practicing at home and school, and leaving the house right away. Children got to see and hear about the tools, gear and even inside of the truck!

The highly engaging and entertaining LEAD U group put on a terrific performance that focused on the importance of thinking for ourselves, handling conflict, recognizing our feelings, and learning how to regulate strong emotions. There was dancing, games, teacher performances, student performances, an actress dressed as a banana and lots of laughter and smiles!
