Longview FD puts on puppet show for students

LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - Puppets played an important role in fire safety Friday in Longview.

Students at Spring Hill Primary School were treated to music and a puppet show by members of the Longview Fire Department.

Kids were educated on what to do in case of fire, and the importance of "stop, drop and roll."

For teachers, its a helpful tool to reinforce fire safety.

"We really appreciate the fact that the fire department will come out here and talk to the kids," said Principal Peggy Mayfield, with Spring Hill Primary. "We try to teach them, but when the fire department comes here, and they actually see them, we think that has a great influence on them helping to remember."

The Longview Fire Department will host numerous educational shows at area schools throughout the school year.
