At the Carl T. Mitnick School in Lower Township, students learned about fire prevention and how to “stop, drop and roll” to help them in event of a fire.

The West Cape May Volunteer Fire Co. visited Cape Christian Academy in Cape May Court House in recognition of Fire Prevention Week. The firefighters brought with them a brush fire truck with equipment, as well as a two-dimensional model house to practice fire fighting.

Each student tried their hand at putting out the mock fire. Students learned all the important elements of fire prevention, while getting a bird's eye view of the life of a firefighter and all their job entails.

Each child received a firefighter's hat with a bag of coloring books and fire prevention tips to take home.
