Fire Prevention Week begins


October 5, 2017

National Fire Protection Week begins on Sunday, Oct. 8 and the Thermopolis Volunteer Fire Department has a long list of things they are going to be doing in the schools to help students learn “Every Second Counts.”

Things will kick off on Monday with the firemen visiting Ralph Witters Elementary’s kindergarten, kinder-boost, first and second grades at 8:45 a.m.

As a special treat, the firemen will be serving lunch to the students from 11:30 to 12:45 before heading into the third and fourth grade classrooms in the afternoon.

Older students will get to see a live fire demonstration, make a trip through the department’s brand new “smoke house” and even get a chance to squirt some water.

The little ones are on the list for Tuesday as the firemen visit CRC at 8:45 before heading to head start at 9:30. They will also meet with Risen Son’s preschool at 10:15, then go to the Senior Center during their lunch hour to answer questions and bring fire safety tips on convenient magnets for the refrigerator.

After lunch they will be back at Risen Son, over to Amy Ready’s preschool and BOCES in the afternoon.

Tuesday night will be pizza delivery night through Pizza Hut. Order your pizza to be delivered Tuesday night and the firemen, complete with firetruck and lights, will deliver right to your house, a special treat for kids of any age.

The firemen finish up their week on Wednesday with a visit to the three-year olds at CRC at 8:45, Risen Son at 9:30, Moms and Tots at 10 a.m., Storytime at the library at 10:45 and CRC at 11:30.
