Fire Pal Robert from the Phoenix Fire Department arrived at SS. Simon & Jude’s Library on Tuesday, Jan 28th to the excitement of the kindergarten through 4th grade students and teachers. Today he would talk about Water Safety and share the “Rules of Water Safety.” They were very simple.
- Never swim alone!
- Learn to Swim.
He asked students to help him demonstrate how you can help rescue someone.
- Call 911.
- Call for an adult.
- Throw a noodle toy, or use the pool cleaning pole.
- Never go into the water unless it is only waist deep.
Fire Pal Robert had made two other visits to SSJ this school year. Once to learn Fire Safety and once to learn Bike/Pedestrian Safety. He promised to return next year so we can learn more about being safe.
