Lovelady Elementary/Middle School had an announced fire drill on Friday, Oct. 2. Firefighters and trucks from Austonio Volunteer Fire Department, Lovelady Volunteer Fire Department, and Weldon Volunteer Fire Department were all present.
From Austonio: was Mike Biggs and Frank Cox; from Lovelady was Patrick Allen, John Cimrhanzl, Troy Driskell, Eric Gilcrease, William Money, and Brandon Monk and from Weldon was Charlie Adams, Randy Jones, Dennis Taylor, and Donya Taylor
Along with the scheduled fire drill, students ages Pre-K - third grade had an opportunity to view the fire trucks, shoot water out of the hoses, look at emergency equipment, use medical equipment, and try on firefighter gear.
Not only was this extremely informative for the students, but everyone, including the firefighters, had a great time as well.
In addition, the fire department provided Educational Fire Safety coloring books, workbooks, stickers, and 911 phone stickers to the students.
