As part of National Fire Prevention Week, Knoxville Fire Department’s Fire Safety House made a stop at Sacred Heart Cathedral School. The Fire Safety House is a 30-foot long, two-level mobile classroom that simulates the various living spaces in a residence where fire hazards might exist.
Mrs. Cobb’s second-grade class was able to experience the house first hand. The students learned what to do and what not to do if a fire happens in their home. They went from a living room to the kitchen, to an upstairs bedroom where they descended down a ladder to practice an emergency exit from an upstairs location, and then finally to a safe meeting place. Joining in on the fun, Scott Barron donned his firefighter turnouts to show kindergartners what to do in case a fire breaks out at home.
Every year, thousands of children are taught valuable life-saving lessons with the use of this special trailer.
