Newburgh Schools Participate In Fire Prevention Week Activities (Oct. 7-13)
Many of our schools participated in activities surrounding Fire Prevention Week (Oct. 7-13).
Our students learned a comprehensive list of fire safety recommendations, including the importance of smoke alarms, the dangers of matches, candles and stoves, and how to navigate their home by crawling below the smoke and checking the temperature of doors before opening them.
Students were also shown the trucks and equipment our local Firefighters use to battle fires. For additional resources regarding Fire Prevention Week, visit: https://www.nfpa.org/Public-Education/Campaigns/Fire-Prevention-Week
TEACHERS: Are you and your students doing something great? Please contact your Communication Strategist. We’d love to attend or post your pictures and recap to highlight the amazing accomplishments throughout our district!
