As part of their social studies unit this month, first grade students have been studying and learning about community helpers. Today, St. Matthews Fire Department, as well as the Louisville Metro Police Department joined our students on campus.
Firefighters shared with students the importance of fire safety and fire evacuation plans. They talked to students about their jobs and how we, as citizens, can help them be the best firefighters in an emergency situation. Students were able to see tools, ladders, uniforms, and climb into the trucks!
Police officers shared with students the importance of knowing who a police officer is, what they wear, and why they're helpful in our community. They reviewed gun safety, as well as what to do in emergency situations. Students were able to climb into a retired police helicopter.
Thank you, St. Matthews FD and LMPD for these great experiences this morning!
