  • Fire Department visits K-2!

    On Friday, October 12th, the Jackson Hole Fire Department and EMS visited the JHCA campus to talk with students K-2 about fire safety and what to do in an emergency. Students learned about the importance of smoke alarms, having a plan to exit their homes safely in the event of a fire, and what to do when you need to call 911. The firefighters and EMS crew invited students to explore the firetruck and ambulance and learned that it can take up to five people to use the firehose on the truck. Students went home with fire hats and a packet of helpful information to share with parents. “Today we had such an informative time with the Jackson Hole Fire and EMS team,” said Mrs. Patrick. “They reminded us to plan an escape route with our family, have a meeting place and practice with our family.” The event was a great success for the kids, who were so excited to meet the emergency personnel and share what they had learned with their families.
