Fire Inspector Alice Johnson addresses students
This month, Fire Inspectors Trudi Salisbury and Alice Johnson paid a visit to the 6th, 7th, and 8th grade Language Arts classes at Sabin Elementary School.
During their classroom outreach they presented information on how to prepare for an emergency or natural disaster, which was mainly geared towards earthquakes. The emphasis of the presentation was to "make a kit, make a plan, get trained" and included information on how to "prepare-respond-recover."
Prior to the presentation the students learned about volcanoes, earthquakes, and other natural phenomena that could lead to disasters. There was an overall positive and interactive response to the classroom visit.
