Vestal Students Learning About Fire Safety

Hundreds of elementary students in the Vestal School District will be hearing some vital fire safety information over the next few days.

Representatives of the Vestal and Apalachin fire departments will visit the district’s five elementary schools as part of Fire Safety Month activities.

Speaking on WNBF Radio’s Binghamton Now program, Vestal Fire Department fire prevention educator Ken Fortier said he plans to be at the African Road Elementary School on South Benita Boulevard next Tuesday morning. Fortier will be joined by Sparky the Fire Dog to present a fire safety lesson.

Fire safety lessons will be presented by Fortier October 11 at Glenwood Elementary on Jones Road and October 12 at Vestal Hills Elementary on Country Club Road.

On October 15, first-grade students and their teachers plan to walk to Vestal Fire Station One on Main Street.

Next Tuesday and Wednesday, the Apalachin Fire Department is scheduled to bring a fire truck and an ambulance to the Tioga Hills Elementary School on Glann Road.

Fortier said it’s important for children to learn about fire safety in a way that doesn’t unnecessarily frighten them.
