Fire prevention strategies emphasized at Wellington school
Students at Wellington Elementary are amazed by the sound that fire fighters make while dressed in full apparatus. As part of a school contest, students created posters which explained fire prevention strategies. Winners of the contest include Malea Sweet, Colton Ekker, Iesha Parry, Joshua Winger, Kale Cotner and Rachel Hall. The four top place winners each received a bike which was donated by the Wellington Fire Department. The fire crew visited the school during an assembly to present the bikes as well as demonstrate the sound and show the students what a fully geared fire fighter looks like during a fire. The students watched in silence as the fire fighters walked around the gymnasium.
