Students Learn About Fire Prevention

Posted: Updated:

It's Fire Prevention Week in Dickinson. And this year's theme is preventing kitchen fires.

Students from Dickinson area schools visited the Central Fire Station today. They learned everything from the "Stop, Drop and Roll" technique to how the firefighters respond to calls.
The fire chief says that with the growth in Dickinson, a lot more people are calling the fire department, especially about fires in the kitchen or while cooking.

"The whole purpose of Fire Prevention Week and recognizing it nationally is for that awareness. To kind of tap you on the shoulder and say, hey, by the way, is your smoke detector working? Have you thought of that? Do you realize this may be a hazard?" says Fire Chief Robert Sivak.

The Dickinson Fire Department is also hosting an event in the Biesiot Activities Center parking lot. Kids can ride in trucks or talk to firefighters.
