The Lutherville Volunteer Fire Department visited Hampton Elementary School on November 4th to teach students about their jobs and fire safety. Fourth and fifth graders met in the cafeteria and listened to the firefighters give a presentation. The firefighters talked about what to do if there's a fire, the importance of having a fire safety plan, and they reviewed what a smoke detector does. After the presentation, the students were able to donate money for the "Fill the Boot" fundraiser, which raises money to support the fire department. Then they got to go see the fire truck in the front of school. The fire fighters showed students some of their equipment, talked about car fires, and gave students a chance to ask some questions.
