Eleven-year-old Aiden Brown put into practice what he learned during a recent safety demonstration at his school. According to the Oklahoma Farm Report, Aiden discovered a fire at his house after returning from school and made sure his seven-year-old sister, Abigail, got outside when he contacted the fire department.

Fire officials say Aiden learned what to do when Oklahoma Farm Bureau Safety Specialist David Turner set up a fire safety trailer outside the elementary school and discussed escape planning and provided other fire safety training to the children.

“I’m so grateful the Farm Bureau goes to schools with their fire safety trailer,” Melisa Brown, the children’s mother was quoted as saying. “My kids are safe today because of that training. It’s a great program.”

The fire chief says he wants Turner to return with the trailer to train older children and possibly adults.
