Fire_prevention wkLast week firemen from the Bourbon Fire Department took time from their busy schedule to visit Triton Elementary School to help students learn about how to be safe in fire emergencies.

The fireman wanted to be sure everyone has at least one working smoke detector in their home, knowing that it is best to have one for every bedroom. The firemen also explained that families need to make plans now in order to know what they will do and where they will meet if a fire were to ever happen in their home.

Other lifesaving tips the Bourbon Fire Department talked about was knowing to call 9-1-1 in an emergency, along with stop, drop, and roll if clothes catch and not going back into a fire to look for pets or toys.

Triton Superintendent Donna Burroughs said, “We love visits from our community and we thank the fire department for joining us for fire prevention week!”

Participating firemen include: Robert Firestone, Shawn Meinert, Paul Martin, Doug Eyrich, DJ Lindsey, and Lane Stevens.
