GRASSY FORK-"Get Out and Stay Out!", along with "Know 2 Ways Out", sounded throughout halls of Grassy Fork Elementary School recently, as students and firefighters reviewed fire prevention tips for National Fire Prevention Month.

Each October, members of the Grassy Fork Volunteer Fire Department review fire prevention tips with the Grassy Fork Elementary students, kindergarten thru 8. 

Students reviewed home evacuation plans and drills, smoke detector placement and service recommendations, how to effectively use a fire extinguisher and proper placement in a home, "Stop Drop and Roll", home fire safety tips and for the finale, students enjoyed the annual spraying of the fire hose.
