Albany - About 3,000 young South Georgia students visited the Albany Civic Center this morning to learn about fire safety as part of Fire Safety and Education Month.

Officer of the Albany Fire Department have dressed up as clowns and other colorful characters to catch the attention of the kids as they teach them the importance of leaving lit candles alone, and the safe way to escape form a house fire.

The firefighters wrote, sang, and recorded their own songs designed to help kids understand that fires can be deadly, and how the can avoid becoming a victim. Techniques such as staying close to the floor, and the tried-and-true 'stop, drop, and roll' are part of the message.

The fire safety program brought children from Albany and several surrounding counties.
