Fire Fighting Friends

Everything is viewed as an opportunity for learning at KSDS, and that includes this week’s visit from the Pikesville Volunteer Fire Department. After the older students returned to their classrooms following a scheduled fire drill, the Kindergartners had the opportunity to meet with several firefighters to learn about fire fighting equipment and to discuss fire safety. Our youngest students were able to watch a firefighter prepare to battle a fire by putting on his specialized clothing, mask and breathing apparatus. Although the firefighter’s voice and appearance changed drastically, the students appreciated that in case of emergency, this community helper is someone on whom they can depend!
