Safety Education: Frisco Fire Clowns Visit Students (October, 2006)

Frisco Fire fighters teach Ashley students the importance of safety.

Ashley Elementary started their morning with many rounds of laughs, Wednesday, October 11, as the Frisco Firemen Clowns paid a visit, complete with their “stick horses” and “Safety town” city. While offering many opportunities for jokes and laughs, the Clowns educated the Ashley students about many important safety topics. While dodging a “stranger” in their own Safety town, they taught the students key rules to remember about Strangers:

  1. When you see a stranger, leave the area immediately and find an adult you know,
  2. Use a secret password that only you and your loved ones know (if the stranger doesn’t know the password, they are a stranger!), and
  3. Do not ever help a stranger, even if they offer candy or want help finding a pet.

Ashley students were also educated on important Gun Safety Rules. The visiting Clowns demonstrated how to 1) Stop!, 2) Don’t touch!, 3) Leave the area, and 4) Find an adult immediately whenever a gun is found.

Lastly, students were reminded of the importance of, “STOP, DROP, and ROLL!,” if they ever accidentally catch on fire.

While learning important safety measures, students were able to laugh and enjoy this bright and colorful start to their day!

The Frisco Fire Clowns are visiting all the FISD elementary schools this month as part of Fire Prevention Month. The Frisco Fire Department works closely with FISD to help teach safety on campus and how to be safe at home to all students.
