Community Helpers

Ms. Sparwasser's Classroom at Pershing Elementary School took a walking field trip to the University City Fire House on Thursday, April 6, 2017 as a part of their Community Helpers Unit.  The students were able to explore the fire house, fire trucks, and get up close to the fire fighters with their life saving gear on.   

The firefighters talked about what the students need to do and say if they are in a dangerous situation. They stressed they are there to help and keep them safe but, most importantly for them not to hide or be scared. The firefighters explained that you should always get low to the ground because smoke rises. A big thank you to the to the University City Firefighters for taking the time to give them a tour of the fire house!
