In recognition of National Fire Safety Awareness Week, members of the Carle Place Fire Department stopped by Cherry Lane Elementary School to provide a hands-on lesson on all aspects of fire prevention and safety.  Students learned what to do in the event of a fire emergency – including the proper way to exit a home or building – and were asked to remind their parents to check their home smoke detectors regularly. They also had the opportunity to get an up-close look at the department’s trucks and learned about how fire apparatus is used to extinguish fires and save lives. Sparky, the department’s cuddly firedog, also made the trip!
