6/2014-Enumclaw Fire Department/KCFD #28 would like to extend our sincere appreciation to our elementary schools (Kibler Elementary, Sunrise Elementary, Southwood Elementary, and Westwood Elementary) for their involvement with the 1st Grade Fire Safety Program! We are delighted to announce that we were able to visit every first grader in our district this year!!
Each year, Enumclaw Fire Department/KCFD #28 visits each first grade class in our district and holds a presentation on Fire and Life Safety. Our objective is to allow students to learn and explore fire safety in a safe and interactive environment. By introducing students to a positive experience with firefighters, we hope to teach valuable lessons for preventing emergency situations and to help reduce anxiety and fear during a real emergency.
During each classroom presentation, firefighters talk on subjects using age appropriate curriculum.
We cover topics including:
“What is an emergency?”
How to call 911
Stop, Drop, Cover and Roll
Family Fire Escape Plans
Helmets and Seatbelts
Tools vs Toys
Lighters/Matches are NOT Toys
Message from the firefighters:
“We love what we do especially when we get to visit the elementary schools for our 1st Grade Fire Safety Program . We love this community and we adore helping to make it a safer place. Reaching out to the first grade students is a great way for the students to be introduced to firefighters. By having a school based prevention program, we are able to teach on topics that are grade level appropriate. We are excited to meet with the students each year!!”
If you or your student have further questions or concerns, please feel free to call the Enumclaw Fire Department/KCFD #28 at (360)825-5544.
