Members of the Middletown Fire Department visited Macdonough School to teach fire safety to second and third grade students. The fire fighters brought the department's Smoke Trailer to provide a hands on experience for the children.
The purpose of the Smoke Trailer is to advance fire safety and preparation techniques. The Smoke Trailer is a useful tool in teaching both the young and old to find safety in a fire. The Smoke Trailer if filled with a non-toxic smoke and visitors are led to safety. The demonstration is designed to make the public aware of fire safety, home fire prevention and the importance of establishing a safe escape route
