Minnesauke Elementary School kindergarten through second-grade students learned important safety lessons during a recent fire prevention program provided by the dedicated members of the Setauket Fire Department.

Throughout the program, volunteers reinforced the importance of having a predetermined family meeting place, the need to regularly replace smoke detector batteries and having a number to call in case of an emergency. 

Outside the building, students were able to tour two working fire apparatuses and take an up-close look at the firefighters’ lifesaving equipment as well as an ambulance and rescue boat. Each student was then provided with a keepsake informational goody bag, which included materials to reinforce the messages that were discussed.
