The National Fire Protection Association set the week of October 3-9 as Fire Prevention Week. Firefighters from the Paris Fire Department visited Aikin Elementary Kindergarten classes to talk to students about fire safety.
Firefighters put their fire suites on and described each piece and its importance. The Firefighters wanted the students to see them with the full suite on so that they would know not to be scared and to know they are there to help if they need them. Students walked around the fire truck, looked at all of the details, and asked questions about the equipment.
