Adair Fire Department to meet with ACGC Elementary Students during Fire Prevention Week

(Adair) The Adair Fire Department will have a presence at the elementary school in Adair on Friday.

As part of Fire Prevention Week, Fire Chief Kelby Smith says they run students through the fire truck, ambulance, and have some firemen fully suited up.

“Depending on the age and class we’ll do different things, but we try to get every kid outside and show them the truck and show them the ambulance. It’s just to get them familiar with it and not be afraid of it if they see it coming. If anything ever does happen then they feel comfortable being inside of our equipment.”

The theme for the week is Not All Heroes Wear a Cape, Plan and Practice Your Escape.
