Fire fighters, in full fire protection gear, walk among first and second grade students giving high fives and handshakes to teach the students to not be afraid. Five Prairie du Chien fire fighters spent the day going to local schools to teach students about the main themes related to fire prevention and safety. Students learned about fire and carbon monoxide alarms, how to exit homes safely if there is a fire, and how to contact 911. Educators were given goodie bags for the students that contain information about all the themes taught and how to enter into both a written and poster contest. (Courier Press/Melissa R. Collum)
