Valdosta - Some South Georgia students learned the importance of smoke detectors Wednesday.

Lowndes County firefighters performed skits and used mechanical puppets to teach students at Georgia Christian School about fire safety. They reminded them where to place smoke detectors, how to clean them, and when to change the batteries.

The firefighters also volunteered to install smoke detectors in any of the students' homes that didn't already have one.

"We instill a program that these children will go home tonight and sit down at supper and tell their parents everything that they've learned today," said Chief Jim Fielding.

Lowndes County firefighters will continue teaching fire education at schools throughout the month of October. They hope to reach more than 5,000 students.
