News Community Fire Prevention Week at Iotla Valley

As part of National Fire Prevention Week, held Oct. 6-12, Iotla Valley Elementary visited the Franklin Fire Department last week. Iotla Valley's kindergarten and first grade classes toured the fire department and learned fire safety tips.

Iotla Valley teachers Brandi Patton and Pam Shepherd, along with their teacher assistants, Linda Henry and Sherry Bateman teamed up with Franklin Fire Department volunteers David Rusch and Mike Shepard to give students a tour of the department.

David Rusch helps Pam Shepherd put on the fire gear firefighters wear. Students learned about calling 911, got tours of the fire trucks, learned how to use the hose, how firefighters perform extractions from cars during a wreck, and other general fire safety tips.
