The homework tonight was assigned by volunteer fireman Mr. Brooks! He spoke the class about fire safety and asked students to complete the following homework assignments:
- Have your parents test all the smoke detectors in the house – a. to make sure the batteries are good & b. the expiry date on the smoke detectors (they’re only good for 10 years and should be replaced).
- Make sure that your family has an emergency escape plan in case of fire – with a meeting place away from the house. He gave students a paper to review emergency numbers and a space for drawing out the plan.
- Open House at the Firehall – Thursday, Oct. 8 @ 7 pm!
The fireman also talked about having a smoke detector near or in every bedroom. Their motto for this fire safety week is Hear the Beep where you Sleep!!!
