By  | 

TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) - Kindergartners at Rock Creek Elementary had a special lesson with the Twin Falls Fire Department on fire safety.

The students learned what to say if firefighters need to locate them in a fire at home.

The firefighters also taught these kids about safe meeting places, fire education, more about smoke detectors and what the fire department does.

The students were intrigued by the lesson and one student wanted to be just like them.

"I'm going to be a firefighter when I grow up," says kindergartner Eliza Palmer.

Tony Jardine, a fire truck driver at the Twin Falls Fire Department, says, "We really want to reiterate with these kids that they have to have a safe meeting place if there's an event in their home that they know where to go to facilitate the rescue of that event."

Along with learning about fire safety, the kids were encouraged to talk to their parents about what they learned and how to be prepared if a house fire should happen.
