As a part of National Fire Prevention week, area students got a lesson in fire safety.
On Tuesday, the Wheeling Fire Department brought its Fire Safety House to Corpus Christi to give students the chance to learn the ins and outs of being a fire fighter.
Students also had the chance to learn how to respond if a fire would ever break out at home.
“I learned to stuff a pillow under the door is smoke is coming out,” said Hannah McCraken, a second grader at Corpus Christi.
“I learned about stop, drop and roll and to never open the door. You should always check with the back of your hand to make sure it’s not too hot. If it isn’t, then you get out. If it is, you scream or stop, drop and roll,” added Alek Btanze, a second grader at Corpus Christi.
During the simulation, students learned about kitchen fires, smoke detectors and how to escape a bedroom fire.
Then, they finished with a fire drill.
