Students learn fire safety during Fire Prevention Week

Staff Writer

Throughout Fire Prevention Week, Guymon Fire Department firefighters visited Guymon schools to teach children about fire safety and used the Oklahoma Farm Bureau Kids Fire Safety trailer that had a kitchen, living room and bedroom in it. On Wednesday, Firefighter Anthony Ramirez told Salyer Elementary students about fireplace safety, calling 911 when there is a fire and finding safety when evacuating a house fire. Children also were taught about smoke detectors. Firefighters turned on a smoke machine in order for the children to learn to stay low to the ground while evacuating a house fire. Firefighters also taught fire prevention in the kitchen area.
