But they're not teaching students fire safety in a traditional classroom setting; firemen are teaching students fire safety through hands-on entertainment.
"It relates more to the children. They can understand something in a more fun, energetic manner then just watching videos, or getting leaflets. It brings it to life. We are trying to teach them fire prevention this year; Know 2 Ways Out, it's for fire safety in the home or in the school," says Michael Geller, Whitesboro Fire Prevention Chairman.
Know 2 Ways Out is this year's safety theme and the fire prevention teams stress the importance of having safety plans in place at home and at school.
