The Families Living Together Home Schooling students along with others attended the afternoon session to learn about what to do in the event of a fire in their homes.

After a lesson with City of Red Deer fire prevention officer Steve Gailloux, the children put into practice a fire evacuation plan and found their way to safety in the smoke filled rooms of the mock-up house.

Safety City has a number of programs to keep children safe including pedestrian safety, acreage and farm safety.
