Jodey Garman gets some helping hands in the form of Kingman Fire Department firefighters Capt. Robert Cole (left) and Steve Dixon recently at Centennial Park. October is Fire Prevention Month and KFD was educating third-graders at the KAOL Intermediate School about fire safety. They had the "E.D.I.T.H." (Exit Drills In The Home) educational station, which includes a fire safety kitchen and real smoke. Kids got to call a live 911 operator and practice emergency procedures. Firefighters emphasized that families should have a safe meeting place so that in case of emergency, all members of a family who escape a fire in their home can meet up and know that everyone is safe.
