October is Fire Safety month and we were fortunate to have the Mineville Witherbee Fire Department was here to work with our students and allowed them to explore the fire truck. As you know, it is not unusual for younger children to fear firemen in uniform, and sometimes to run away from them during a fire emergency. Mr. Jeff Farnsworth and Mr. Charles Farnsworth spent time with both the Head Start students and our younger children to help them understand that underneath the fireman’s uniform is a man trying to help them. They practiced “stop, drop and roll”, and discussed how they evacuate their home in an emergency.
