Learning What To Do In Case Of Fire


By Jay Michaels

Jerome, Idaho (KMVT-TV) Kindergarteners in Jerome got a visit from some firemen who wanted to make sure they knew what to do in case of fire.

Last year, a new step was added to "Stop, Drop, And Roll." The kids learned about "Stop, Drop – Cover – And Roll."
They're learning to cover their faces to protect their eyes and lungs from smoke and fire. This was all part of Fire Prevention Week for the fire departments in Jerome.

Mike Harrison, Firefighter Engineer for the Jerome City Fire Department, says, "This year the topic is Two Ways Out, so we're trying to get the message across to the children of Jerome to have two ways out of your house at all times, just in case they're every involved with their house being on fire."

Harrison says by the time the students are in fourth grade, they've pretty well memorized exactly what they need to do.

This Saturday from 9:00 a.m. until 12 noon, the Jerome City and Rural Fire Departments will be hosting a pancake breakfast on East Avenue A in Jerome. After you've eaten, you can take an up-close look at the fire engines and stations for both of the fire departments.
