Wyoming Valley Montessori School students were recently hosted by the Kingston / Forty Fort Fire Department at the station, 600 Wyoming Ave., Kingston. Students were treated to a program that demonstrated fire prevention and home escape techniques along with other fire safety techniques such as stop, drop and roll. Utilizing the fire safety house, students were able to practice these techniques in a realistic setting which utilized electronically-operated smoke detectors and nontoxic smoke that recreates the effect of an actual fire. Floyd Young, firefighter, coordinated the program for students.
