Students visit Milwaukee’s Survive Alive House, kicking off Fire Prevention Week

NOW: Students visit Milwaukee’s Survive Alive House, kicking off Fire Prevention Week

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) – Monday marks the beginning of Fire Prevention Week.

Students from Milwaukee’s Spanish Immersion School went to the Survive Alive House not only to learn fire prevention skills, but to learn what to do during a fire.

The theme of this year’s Fire Prevention Week is look, listen and learn. Before students had the chance to go through fire prevention program, Mayor Tom Barrett, Milwaukee firefighters and Milwaukee Public School leaders kicked off the week.

Although the event was aimed at children, authorities want every family to be prepared in case of a fire.

“The best thing for us when we pull up is for somebody to meet us and say my family is right here, and we’re all safe,” Fire chief Mark Rohlfing said. “Then we can do our job and don’t have to worry about your safety.”

At the event, students learned it is important to come up with an escape route in your home, always have working smoke detectors and always remain calm.

If you or your family needs a smoke detector, call the Milwaukee Fire Department Smoke Detector Hotline at 414-286-8980.
