ALBION – Joey Schoeberlein, an Albion third-grader, aims the hose at targets with some help from Albion firefighter Beau Piskorowski during a program today outside the elementary school as part of Fire Prevention Week.

Piskorowski and a third-grade student spray water at targets. The house with the fake flames was built by Andrew Cheverie for his Eagle Scout project last year. This was the first time it was used for Fire Prevention Week at the school.

Andrew Cheverie, right, also built this stop that allows students to practice “Stay Low and Go” in case of a fire. Students first checked to see if the door was hot. When it wasn’t hot, they opened it and crawled under the pretend flames.

Ryan Woolston, a Carlton firefighter, showed students the rescue boat used by the Carlton Fire Department.
