Fire Department Visits Pleasant Students

Fire Department Visits Pleasant Students

In recognition of Fire Prevention Safety Month, firefighters from the City of Johnstown  paid a visit to Pleasant Avenue during Morning Program. The students were very excited to see a fire truck up close and to ask questions of the firemen!

Fire safety and prevention should be practiced all of the time. Here are some fire safety tips:

  • Place a working smoking detector on every level of your home and test it monthly
  • Keep matches, lighters and candles  in a secure place and teach children that they are tools not toys
  • Choose an escape route and practice it regularly with your family
  • If clothing is on fire remember to “Stop, Drop and Roll”
