This year the student's from Blades Elementary School participated in the Annual Fire Prevention Program that is put on during the month of October. The student's and their teachers visited the Fire Station and participated in a hands on day where they were able to see the many types of equipment on the Fire Trucks and Ambulance. They also received a very Special Fire Prevention Message. After a small snack and a visit from Smokey Bear, they also received a gift from the Fire Company.
