Lee Road Students Stop, Drop and Learn

October 04, 2017

Lee Road Students Stop, Drop and Learn - image001In an effort to prepare students for a possible emergency, members of the Wantagh Fire Department visited Lee Road Elementary School on Sept. 28 to review the importance of fire safety through discussion, videos and hands-on practice.

Students in grades K-2 heard from Wantagh firefighter John Licata in the school's gymnasium. Licata showed the classes the gear that firefighters wear in an emergency situation. The students also watched a fire safety video and learned about the importance of smoke detectors.

Students in grades 3-5 heard from Wantagh firefighter John Loeber, who spoke about what to do when a fire breaks out. He also discussed the use of smoke detectors and urged students to take them seriously. The classes watched a fire safety video that encouraged them to have a family escape plan in place in case of an emergency.

The older students had the unique opportunity to practice an E.D.I.T.H. drill, which stands for Exit Drills In The Home. Classes were invited outside the building where the Wantagh Fire Department brought a Smoke House for them to practice their emergency preparedness.

With the supervision of the fire department, the students went into the Smoke House and learned what to do when smoke fills the air. They followed an escape plan which included getting low, moving towards a window, sitting on a windowsill, calling out for help and exiting to safety with the assistance of a fireman.
