Teaching more than ‘stop, drop and roll’

The Oxford Fire Department is teaching kids emergency skills that will last a lifetime. In its second year, the Fire Academy taught campers how to stay safe during a fire and bicycle safety tips. The Fire Academy is offered to children of Oxford and Lafayette County free of charge. This year’s session had 36 children attend. (July 16, 2010, Page 1B)
