The Poplarville Fire Department came to PLE to speak to the children about fire safety. The children learned what to do in case of a fire in their house.  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 got to shake the fireman’s hand. This helped familiarize the students with the uniform so they won’t be scared in case of an emergency. Then each student was given a keychain with “Celebrate Fire Prevention by never playing with fire and practicing a family fire escape plan” on it.
