Hello Gibbon Nation. October 3 - 9 is Fire Prevention Week.
Here is a message from State Fire Marshall Christopher B. Cantrell, CLSSEGB:
This year’s dates are October 3 – 9, 2021 and the theme is “Learn the Sounds of Fire Safety.” If at all possible, I would appreciate it if you could share the two links below to the parents in your district.
In the first link, there are many fun and interesting lesson plans, videos, workbooks, and songs that talk about fire prevention, fire safety, and other things our kids and communities need to know to be fire safe. The second link will take you to the Fire Prevention Week page to further explore this year’s theme, “Learn the Sounds of Fire Safety.”
Fire prevention week presents us such an amazing opportunity to teach kids about fire and life safety. As you know, the education of our children is always a community priority. Because of this, I am asking for your help as we strive to make our homes and communities safe from fire and the losses that result therefrom. I would truly appreciate it if you would join with me to help spread the message about this, and to share the links to the myriad of free tools and materials available to teachers and schools.
