Fire Safety campaign kicks off

TIFTON, GA (WALB) -

Young students in Tift County got schooled on fire safety.

Georgia Insurance and Fire Safety Commissioner Ralph Hudgens kicked off a statewide fire safety campaign aimed at school-age children.

22 pre-schoolers from Miss Daisy Darlings Day Care toured the Tift County fire department and learned valuable lessons they will take with them through their lives.

"We like to get our information out there,teach them about fire safety, teach them about what we do, show them our gear and our trucks, and at the same time we try to make it fun, and throw in a little bit of safety about smoke detectors and stop, drop, and roll, all that good stuff"says Danny Wallace, Lead Fire Fighter.

Calendars featuring fire safety tips for children and illustrated by children are being distributed to thousands of classrooms around the state as part of the fire safety campaign.
