Local volunteer firefighters brought their trucks and fire-fighting gear to school for the students to see. As is the Fire Prevention Day tradition at MED, our new assistant principal, Mr. Fortran, became an honorary firefighter by dressing up in all the protective clothing they wear when on the job. MED then held a fire drill and after that, the firefighters went classroom to classroom to talk about fire safety with our students. These real-life heroes even hung around to eat lunch with our youngsters in the cafeteria! Special thanks to all the firefighters from the Chatham, East Chatham, Ghent, and Spencertown fire companies who came out to MED on October 19. You make Fire Safety Day a student favorite!
