The Covington News - - Local News -

To pre­pare for “Fire Preven­tion Week” dur­ing the week of Oc­to­ber 6-10, Pied­mont Academy stu­dents in grades K3 and K5 had a spe­cial visit by the Jasper County Fire Depart­ment on Oct. 9.

Fire­fight­ers ex­plained the im­por­tance of hav­ing a fam­ily fire safety plan, what to do if their home were to catch on fire and whom to call. The fire­fight­ers were dressed in their fire­man’s suit for the stu­dents and ex­plained all the “bells and whis­tles” as­so­ci­ated with their at­tire along with the tools they use to fight a fire.

Af­ter­wards, the stu­dents were given a demon­stra­tion of lights and sirens of the fire truck and the many dif­fer­ent types of calls fire­fight­ers han­dle ev­ery day. At the con­clu­sion of the pro­gram, the stu­dents were given “Ju­nior Fire Fighter” badges and fire hel­mets.
