Fire Safety with Sparky
By: Riley Nevil, PCA senior
Friday, November 20th, the Claxton Fire Department visited Pinewood as part of the Fire Safety Week activities at the school. The CFD educated the lower school PCA students on fire safety. The kids were shown the basic functions of the firetruck and how the firemen’s suits work. They were reminded to stop drop and roll if they were ever caught in a fire and run to the safety of a firefighter. Lastly, with the help of the department’s mascot, Sparky, the kids were taught how to spray the firehose, which was by far the most exciting event of the day.
