Laredo firefighters visit United Day School to teach fire safety | #schoolsaftey


A day of education about fire safety and the importance of the role of firefighters in the community was what United Day School students had on Wednesday when members of the Laredo Fire Department visited the school.

Elsa Morales, United Day School counselor, said that the firefighters from Station 10 actively engaged in the ‘Stop, Drop, and Roll’ lesson.

“This lesson is about on how to detect if a room is hot, and how to get out to safety from a burning building,” she said.

Morales said the children also learned how to listen to an alarm, the importance of a fire detector and calling 9-1-1.

“Mostly important is to have a family safety plan,” she said.

Morales said that the children were all eyes and ears when they saw the firefighter equipment first hand.

“They had an opportunity to see upfront a fireman’s gear, its 60 pound weight and all the equipment on the fire truck,” she said. “Students were in absolute astonishment and so excited to the men in uniform that they high fived them. The ambiance of excitement could be felt in the gymnasium as they chanted the ‘Stop, Drop, and Roll,’ and the excitement of the pouring out of water while outside seeing and touching the engine equipment.”

Morales also highlighted the significance of these types of events as part of an integral education for children.

“These events at school are very important as a way to help the students get acquainted with community workers and their expertise,” she said. “They are getting a first-hand lesson from these role models who safe lives as part of their careers.

“The students can also then turn around and advise their parents on how they can keep their homes and themselves safe. God forbid anything like this should ever happen to them.”
