In honor of Fire Prevention Month, students at Lee Road Elementary School received a visit from the Wantagh Fire Department on Oct. 29. The firefighters shared fire safety and prevention tips with students and allowed third and fourth graders to visit their smokehouse outside.

During the presentations, Lee Road students learned how to stop, drop and roll and the importance of having an exit plan in the event of an emergency. The firefighters also spoke about smoke detectors and showed the younger students what a firefighter in bunker gear looks like. Ex-captain John Licata walked around the gymnasium in his gear so students could get an up-close look and better understanding. This was to ease any fear that a child might have if a firefighter needs to rescue them.

Third and fourth grade classes gathered outside the school building where they were separated into small groups. One by one, the groups entered one of two rooms in the Wantagh Fire Department's smokehouse. The students learned about what to do when smoke fills the air and with the help of Wantagh firefighters and parent volunteers, each student practiced evacuating out of the windows of the smokehouse. The visit enabled students to develop an appreciation for the men and women who serve the community, while also making them fully aware of fire safety issues and what to do in a real emergency.
