Sachem students at Nokomis Elementary School were visited by members of the Ronkonkoma Fire Department as the district continued its emphasis on fire safety and prevention.

Students across all grade levels learned about the various gear that firefighters wear during emergency situations, such as a self-contained breathing apparatus which provides firefighters air as they enter a smoke-filled structure, how to safely escape a fire and the importance of knowing more than one way to exit their home if necessary. 

Concluding the fire prevention assembly program, students were guided through the multiple firefighting apparatuses within the department and had the opportunity to explore a fire truck.
