Firefighters write new safety show for kids

September 9, 2005

Albany -- Firefighters with the Albany Fire Department are going all out, to teach children to stay safe.

 Firefighters are putting together an all new show for their 11th Annual Kids Fire Safety Day, to be held at the Albany Civic Center October 11th.

The firefighters from Albany and Lee County are writing their own new songs, music, and skits to teach kids fire safety.

They put on clown suits and make up to get the children's attention, and then teach them how to stay alive in case of a fire. Battalion Chief David Eddins said "Not to play with matches, to be careful with candles and around stoves, if we instill that in their mind early on, then hopefully we can prevent property loss, and most importantly is unnecessary deaths."

Use Candles with Care is the theme for this year's Kids Fire Safety Day program. Kindergarten through second grade school classes are invited to attend the program at the Albany Civic Center October 11th, starting at 9:30.

Last year over five thousand children attended the fire safety program.
