Thursday, Oct. 24, Ozora Fire Department firefighters Alan Schilli and Sarah Carlson visited Mrs. Rose Kreitler’s preschool classroom to teach students about fire prevention. Mrs. Carlson, who is a Ste. Genevieve Elementary library aide, read the students a story about fire prevention, and they practiced what to do if their house is on fire, including crawling low to the ground and checking doors before opening them. They learned how to escape out a window and discussed having a safe gathering place outside to meet. Alan dressed in turnout gear, while Mrs. Carlson explained the importance of each item he put on. Students had the opportunity to hug or shake Alan’s hand to demonstrate firefighters are friendly even when in their gear. The students were also able to check out the fire truck in the parking lot afterward!
