In honor of Fire Prevention Month, the Huron Township Fire Department spent the morning of Oct. 20, 2017 with the kindergarten classes at Brown Elementary. The fire staff first conducted a classroom session with each classroom introducing fire safety technique’s such as staying low to avoid smoke, stop drop and roll, and how to call 911.
The students then moved outside where they were able to see a real fire truck and ambulance. Our fire department was joined by paramedics from Huron Valley Ambulance. The students were educated on equipment contained within both the fire engine as well as the ambulance.
At the conclusion of the fire safety educational session, the students got a visit from “Flash,” a horse from the Huron Township Police Mounted Unit. Mounted Unit Officer Cherie Stump educated the kids on horse and animal safety.
Public Safety Director Everette Robbins, Chief Jamie Hinojosa, Battalion Chief Jim Katona, Firefighter Vincent Webb, Paramedic Jeff Stachnik, Firefighter Julius Rea, and Mounted Unit Officer Cherie Stump were present for this educational staff.
“This is just one of many educational sessions we plan on conducting with the children in our schools. I couldn’t be prouder of Chief Hinojosa and his staff for the great work they did with the students. There is nothing more important than the safety of our children,” Robbins said.
