In honor of Fire Prevention Week, Oct. 5 through 11, Northwest Fire and Rescue  takes their “Mini-Muster” to elementary schools’ second-graders throughout the Northwest.

Spanning 15 schools and involving about 1,500 students, the fire department sandwiched educational information with fun and games.

Activities ranged from the students getting their hands on an actual fire hose to carrying a bucket of water in a bucket brigade.

During fire-escape activities, students learned how to properly roll out of bed, crawl to the door and check it for heat, while another activity put kids in an enclosed room with simulated smoke so they could experience what it might be like first hand.
