Fire prevention is one of the most important topic

first_imgFire prevention is one of the most important topics people can learn about and students at Moundville Elementary School learned about it from their local superheroes, firefighters.11 local fire departments and the Hale County Emergency Management Agency came out to teach kids fire safety tips while showing them how cool it is to be a firefighter. Since the weather is cooling down, firefighters touched on how to prevent fires caused by space heaters and fireplaces. They also stressed how important it is to have a smoke detector.Principal Jonathan Posey said he hoped this will create a good relationship between the kids and their local firefighters.“We are wanting our students to see those community partnerships,” said Posey. “Today is superhero day, it’s part of our homecoming festivities at Moundville this week and we want our students to see that we’ve got superheroes right here in our own community as well.”Russell Weeden, the Hale County EMA director, said that he hopes that they can inspire kids to want to be firefighters themselves when they grow up.last_img read more
