“Working smoke alarms can make a life-saving difference in a fire” was the message behind the 2014 National Fire Prevention Week’s campaign: “Working Smoke Alarms Save Lives: Test Yours Every Month!” During this special classroom assembly with Mrs. Amber Doble and Mrs. Brenda Parrish’s second graders (and all assemblies held last month at Edon Elementary School), volunteer firefighters from Florence Township Fire Department reminded everyone not only the importance of having working smoke alarms, but to have them installed outside each separate sleeping area and every level of the home as well. Additionally, Scott Powell, Brandon Thiel, Joey Thiel and Corey Oberlin, from left, shared how everyone in the home should know the sound of the smoke alarm, understand what to do when they hear it, stay low if they have to go through smoke and to stay put and answer firefighters in a loud voice when they hear them calling.
