FREER - Fire Prevention Week 2017 at Norman Thomas Elementary was a complete success, according to Fire Marshal Martin Martinez.

The Freer Fire Department visited the school to teach about fire safety education.

"When a child is taught something, they remember... especially when it's a one on one demonstration for instance stop, drop, cover your face, and roll," Martinez said. "These are simple skills we as a fire department teach the children of Freer that can help save a life. Good job to all students and a huge thank you to all the Freer VFD for your support making this event a yearly success."
