Jefferson Elementary hosted its annual Fire Safety Day with the Sandhill Volunteer Fire Department on Oct. 14.
Fire trucks, firefighters, teachers, staff and students all participated in an event designed to engage the students and faculty in preparing for an actual fire emergency.
“We’re pretty much testing Jefferson Elementary’s fire emergency system both inside and out,” said Tommy Catoe, Sandhill Volunteer Fire Department chief.
