Second-graders at Salem Avenue Elementary recently spent two days at Children’s Village, off Mount Aetna Road.

One day was spent learning about fire safety. The students learned the importance of having working smoke detectors, how to call 911 in an emergency, and to “stop, drop and roll” if on fire.

They also toured a burned-out home to see the damage heat and fire can do.

The next day was spent learning how to be safe in the community, including how to use crosswalks safely and not to talk with strangers.

After completion of a follow-up assignment with their families, the children were awarded safety badges. The program is offered to all second-grade students in Washington County.
