The Poplarville Fire Department came to PLE to speak to the children about fire safety. What the children should do in case of a fire was discussed. The importance of fire drills at home, similar to the way we practice at school, will prepare them for any emergencies that may occur. The students learned about dialing 911 in case of an emergency. They learned why it isn’t a good idea to call 911 if it isn’t an emergency. The students saw the uniforms the firemen wear and the equipment on the fire truck. Then each student was given a glow stick bracelet with “Poplarville Fire Dept.” on it.
