Wakefield- Marenisco Students Learn About Fire Safety

WAKEFIELD – October 13, 2011

Wednesday the Wakefield Fire Department provided tours of the Fire Hall and equipment to Wakefield Marenisco students as part of Fire Safety Weeks.
The Kindergarten, Pre-K, Head Start and Great Start students were greeted by Fire Chief Mike Yon and Wakefield Volunteer Firefighters. The youngsters were given demonstrations of gear and equipment and also a class on fire safety, 9-1-1 and what to do and not do in the event of a fire.

Chief Yon stated that fires caused by children have declined as a result of the educational program over the past 15 years. In addition to the demonstration, the kids received fire hats and other handouts, including a coloring calendar with a myriad of safety messages and games. This year the program was sponsored by Trans-Canada Pipeline who donated $1,500 for program.

Outside the hall the youngsters had a great time using fire hoses, climbing into the cab of a fire truck, activating the siren and other signaling devices. Chief Yon gave a tour of the trucks and their equipment.

Approximately 120 students ages 3-5yrs old participated in this year’s event.
