Firefighters Visit Wicomico County Schools for Fire Prevention Week

Posted: Updated:

 

SALISBURY, Md.- National Fire Prevention Week kicked off on Sunday and firefighters from the Salisbury Fire Department are visiting schools all over Wicomico County.

Their first stop on Tuesday morning was at St. Francis de Sales Catholic School in Salisbury.

Second graders learn the basics in fire safety skills such as stop, drop and roll, and how to take action if a fire starts in their homes. 

Some students grew inspiration from firefighter Shelby Gardiner, who is an alumni from the school.

"A lot of nostalgia walking through the hallways...and it's awesome to give back to a school that gave me a great education," said Gardiner.

But an even more important message that firefighters wanted to leave students, was to not fear them. 

"We want them to know that we're there to help and  were gonna do our best to fix whatever problem they have," said Sgt. Zachary Bridges. 

The Salisbury Fire Department will continue visiting classrooms and day cares all this week.
