HHFD Visits Students During
Fire Prevention Week
The Hasbrouck Heights Fire Department visited local schools
for Fire Prevention Week, which was held October 7 through
A brief talk was
given about this year’s theme which is, "Practice
Your Escape Plan," with special attention to home fire
drills just like in school and having at least two escape
plans with a meeting place outside the home.
Department members reminded children to remind their parents
to replace the batteries in their smoke and carbon monoxide
They also reviewed
past fire prevention week themes such as stop, drop and roll
if they catch fire, calling 9-1-1 if there is an emergency,
on their turnout gear, including Scott air packs and explained
the purpose of each component.
The students watched
as a team of firefighters climbed the 110 foot ladder and
waved at the firefighters when they reached the top.
The children then
toured the inside and outside of the fire vehicles.
