The town of Orrington was recently home to the deadliest fire in 20 years in this state. Thirty-year-old Ben Johnson III and his three children were killed when their Dow Road home burned. So the folks at Orrington Fire and Rescue are doing something to try and prevent this tragedy from happening again. A fire safety course will be held at Center Drive School tonight.

Kids are encouraged to bring their parents and parents should bring their kids! They will be talking about smoke detectors, how many should you have and where should you place them? How to develop an escape plan for your home and the importance of practicing the plan so kids will know where to go. And the best place to pick for a meeting place, in the event of a fire.

I once went into one of those “smoke houses” that you often see at safety events. Ever been in one? It’s unbelievable how quickly you can become disoriented! In this particular smoke house, they had a mannequin posing as a child, sitting behind a bed. I absolutely could NOT see that dummy until I used a thermal imaging camera. It’s a whole different world. And so it’s important to do all you can to make sure your children know how to react in the event of a fire.

The Orrington Fire Safety Class will be held tonight, November 20th from 6:15 to 7:30 at the Center Drive School. Bring your kids and make an evening of it!
