The Wyoming Valley Montessori School lower elementary school class was recently hosted by the Kingston/Forty Fort Fire Department at Fire Headquarters 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 non-toxic smoke that recreates the effect of an actual fire.

Firefighters Gabby Williams and Brian Wolfe Jr. coordinated the program for the Montessori students.
