Firefighters talk fire safety

Roseville firefighters hosted a fire prevention and safety assembly for Sargeant Elementary School students on Feb. 3. They told kids about the need for a working smoke detector in every room in the house. They said if fire strikes, get out of the house and stay out. They modeled the rule, “stop, drop and roll” to use if clothes catch fire, and they reminded the children that lighters and matches are tools, not toys.
