Fire Prevention Week

Our elementary students are enjoying a visit from some of our hometown heroes this week, the Montevideo Fire Department!  It is Fire Prevention Week, October 8-14, 2023.  The MFD will be helping us learn about fire safety.  Kindergarten classes will have the opportunity to visit the Fire Station.  Students in grades 1-2 will participate in Fire Station Rotations and students in grades 3-4 will receive a classroom presentation on fire safety.   Students and families should practice escape routes at home and ensure students know their home address.

This year's theme of National Fire Prevention Week focuses on cooking safety. Take a few minutes to watch the fire safety videos below.  They have great reminders for the whole family!

We truly appreciate the Montevideo Fire Department for taking time to work with our students and their continued effort in keeping us safe!
