Albany- Smokey Bear visited the kindergartners and first graders at Alice Coachman Elementary in Albany.

Each child got to meet Smokey and learned about flammable objects they should never play with.

"Don't play with candles because they can burn your hand," says kindergartner Kentravious Zachary.

"If you play on the stove you might get burned," says kindergartner Sedquita Roundtree.

"We try to start with them at very young ages so they'll learn from what we tell them, and that way they'll grow up to be fire safe," explains Forest Ranger Deanna Pietras.

Forest rangers also count on the children to take the fire safety message back home to their parents.
