Norwalk Fire Rescue Team Observes Fire Prevention Week During Fire Safety Week the Norwalk Firefighters came to Oviatt Elementary and taught the third graders how to crawl through a burning room. Firefighters had the students crawl with a buddy, blindfolded, through a room to see what it would be like to be completely disori- ented in a burnh g build- ing. They also had the children try to feel around and find "vic- tims." The students were also able to try on the firefighters' coats to see how heavy they are. Oviatt Elementary third graders appreci- ate the Norwalk fire- fighters coming and helping them learn about fire safety in such a fun and creative way. Norwalk Fire Rescue celebrated another successful fire prevention week October 8-14, contacting nearly 1000 children in the Norwalk area. This year's theme was "Practice Your Exit Drills." Students at Oviatt took part in demonstrations and created posters that have been displayed around the community. Lakewood fourth and fifth grade students took part in an essay contest. The topic was "What 1 can do to keep my family and community fire-safe." Winners were Meghan Zug, fourth grade, and Michael Guessford, fifth grade. The two were picked up from school Thursday, Oct. 18, in a fire truck and were treated to lunch with fire personnel and a tour of the new station.
