On Thursday October 10 the Calvert VFD partnered with Calvert Elementary school to present “Don’t Fear Firefighters in Gear” to grades Pre-K through 5.  
Fire Prevention week was October 6-12.  The main focus this year was to not fear firefighters when they are in all their gear because they are there to rescue and help people.  
Topics that were also talked about were what to do, what they needed to know when calling 9-1-1, and the infamous Stop-Drop-Roll if your clothing catches fire.
The students were sent home with packets from the Fire Department that included activity books, fire prevention pamphlets, pencils, erasers, and many more goodies.
After it was all said and done the presentation was a success.
