Argyle Central School District elementary students in grades kindergarten through third grade participated in a Fire Prevention Program conducted by the volunteer Argyle Fire Rescue at the J.A. Barkley Hose Company No. 1 firehouse on Monday, October 3, 2016.


They watched a video and interactive stations were in place. One station consisted of mats where students practiced, “stop, drop, and roll. At another station, students were able to see Captain Greg Bristol transform himself to a fully geared firefighter. He impressed the importance to the youngers not to be afraid of the alien-like creature he resembled. The firehouse features a “hazard house” with a mock kitchen and living room containing numerous fire hazards. Students were asked to locate the hazards. The students learned not to open a door if it feels hot and to exit through an alternate route such as a window. Students also learned the importance of wearing a helmet while riding bicycles.

Students in grades four through six participated on Tuesday, October 4, 2016.

There is an open house at the firehouse on Wednesday, October 5 from 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.  Students are invited to bring their families to show them what they learned.
