As a part of Fire Prevention Week activities, third grade students from across the Blair district visited the Schuyler Fire Department fire prevention and education smoke trailer parked at Deerfield primary school on Friday. October 10.

The students viewed a melted fire helmet and other items damaged by the intense heat of fire. After entering the smoke trailer the students were asked to spot potential fire hazards such as a frayed extension cord or a heater touching an area rug.

After a fire alarm sounded and theatrical smoke released, Blair fire fighters coached students as they moved down low and exited by way of a window
