Students taking Fire Services I and II spent the first weekend of October assisting Meridian Fire Department with their community Open House and fire safety outreach efforts. These high school students represented their home high school and the Ada Professional-Technical Center as they provided information and demonstrations to the public. Over the weekend, they taught community attendees about calling 9-1-1 and the EDITH system, which stands for Exit Drills in the Home using Safety House. They engaged children, parents and community members about the importance of, and how to manage smoke and CO detectors, demonstrated CPR (a hands only technique), how to get low in smoke, and “drop and roll” fire saving tips. Plus, they had the unique opportunity to share their expertise on the fire engine and the usefulness of firefighting gear.
