If second-graders are going to learn about fire safety, you probably need to get them wet so the information will soak in.

Throughout October and in honor of Fire Prevention Week, the Northwest Fire/Rescue District is visiting 15 elementary schools for its annual Mini Muster fire-safety day.

Each exercise combines basic firefighting skills with fun. Second-graders shoot water from a fire hose at a cone, which represents a fire. They are blindfolded and have to navigate along a fire hose. They get wet carrying buckets of water in a bucket brigade.

Students also race along a fire-safety obstacle course and get to practice home-escape skills.

It’s no wonder the children look forward to participating  in the event.
