Fire Safety Detail at Glyndon Elementary

Reisterstown Volunteer Fire Company organized a fire safety demonstration for the kindergarten classes at Glyndon Elementary school.  They did well as they new what to do if their clothes caught on fire (stop, drop, and roll) and what to do if there was smoke in the house (get down low on the floor and move out of the house). They got to go through the engine and one of the teachers donned our bunker gear.
