Fire Departments in Tennessee Spring into Fire Safety

title

By Kelly Ransdell

Baseball brings back memories for me of the hot and fun days that make summer so cool. My husband and I love to visit ballparks all over the United States to see the baseball stadiums and experience the different cultures. A colleague of mine in Tennessee has taken the fun of baseball and added in fire safety. The Smokies Kids Safety Day, funded by Kohls Cares for Kids, took place this month and was a 3 day event that included a safety relay race. Over 18,000 kids and adults participated in this event with the Tennessee Smokies- a Minor League Affiliate of the Chicago Cubs. The safety relay race included students who fitted a life jacket and bike helmet, tested a smoke alarm and also demonstrated stop, drop, and roll. Firefighters from Seymour Volunteer Fire Department, Severville Fire Department, Rural Metro Fire Department, Knoxville Fire Department, and Karns Volunteer Fire Department along with East Tennessee Children’s Hospital helped to set up this interactive and educational fun day. Just another reminder that safety can be fun. NFPA has many music videos and our own Hula Hoop Relay game to teach kids and adults alike. High five to Tennessee for thinking outside of the box and making fire safety fun.
