Toledo School District says thanks:
Our thanks to the dedicated folks at Lewis County Fire District 2 for bringing the Fire Safety house to TES Friday.
Students learned how to safely exit a burning structure and the importance of checking smoke detectors. They also learned about having a family rally point outside so that firefighters can confirm that everyone is out or that they need to go in for rescue.
