Members of the East Meadow Fire Department held a fun presentation for students in the East Meadow School District’s Extended School Year program on July 21.

Students gathered in Bowling Green Elementary School’s cafeteria where the fire department members shared important skills in fire safety. They dressed in full uniform and gear to show how they look like when they arrive at a house fire. Students also toured an actual fire truck and an EMS truck near the school’s main entrance. They shared thank-you cards with the fire department to show gratitude for their local firefighters.

The district thanks the local firefighters of East Meadow for taking time to educate the students on valuable fire safety and prevention rules.
