Fire safety lesson at Highland Elementary. Firefighters Anna Daigle and Sam Andrus recently spoke at HIghland Elementary students about fire safety and put on fire gear so that the children would know what a fireman looks and sounds like in a fire. The students also enjoyed demonstrations by Sparky the Fire Dog. Pictured along with firefighters Andrus, Daigle and Sparky are Stacy Moncla’s Pre-k class and Pat Savoy’s kindergarten class.
