Count on fire safety


Members of the Columbus Volunteer Fire Department recently visited children in the Pre-K Counts Program at Columbus Elementary School. The students learned about fire safety and how to call 911 in an emergency. Fireman Lee Miller put on his fire fighting gear to show the children what he would look and sound like in the event of an emergency. Students also learned that firemen and women are here to help and children do not have to be afraid of them. Above, students gather outside of Columbus school to see one of the department’s fire trucks. Below, firefighter Chris Lyon, left, displays a smoke detector and talks about its purpose with students.
