TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind, (WLFI) — As a part of Fire Safety Week students at Battle Ground Elementary are learning what to do in an emergency. Members of the Tippecanoe Township Fire Department treated 25 students to breakfast at the station today.

They then hopped on fire trucks and got a ride to school. Firefighters are putting on a safety show for all students to teach kids how to escape a fire.

Assistant Principal Alisan Clayton says knowledge is power.

"Even within our own community, we've had students impacted and have lost their homes due to fire. While getting them to know what they're doing at school, they also need those safety skills at home," said Clayton.

Fourth-grader Porter Linvill knows one of the most important lessons if his house is on fire.

"You go out of your house and you wait for your parents at a meeting place," said Linvill.

During the safety show, students learned how to stop, drop and roll and to call 911 after they get out.
