October was “community helpers” month and “fire safety month” at Acorn Preschool.The preschool along with local fire departments and the forest service joined together to put on a fire safety day on October 4th at the preschool. Children were taught the importance of stop, drop, roll, what number to call in case of an emergency, putting campfires out before you leave them, etc. They were left with surprises such as fire hats and coloring books to take home.
Southwest EMS took time out of their busy schedule to do a program for the preschoolers at Acorn during community helpers month. The program was followed up with a trip through the ambulance and explanation of what kinds of tools paramedics use.
