JFK second-graders participated in a fire prevention program on Oct. 16 when members of the West Babylon Fire Department’s Prevention Committee visited the school to speak to them about fire safety. Students learned what to do if a fire alarm goes off in their house and practiced how to stop, drop and roll. The committee members stressed the importance of having working fire alarms in every bedroom and conducting fire drills at home, just like at school.  
Students were able to see the firemen dressed in their gear, touch their helmets and step aboard an operational fire truck.
