Firefighter talks safety at local school

LYNDEBOROUGH – Firefighter Don Cole visit­ed with the children at the Early Learning Center on Monday, Oct. 17, as part of the school’s Safety Days, which also included visits from the Police Depart­ment and the ambulance service.

"Why do firemen wear helmets?" he asked, and then explained the ways they are different from a bicycle helmet.

Cole also talked about escape routes, a family meeting place, getting out of a burning house and the use of 911.

Remember, he said, "We are here to help you."

The students then in­spected a fire rescue truck.
