Reid Student Uses Fire Safety Lesson to Save Family

Each year in October, Clark-Shawnee Elementary Schools work with local fire departments to educate students about Fire Safety. These lessons are designed to prepare students to keep themselves and their families safe in the event of an emergency, as well as to educate them about preventing fires.

One Reid School Kindergartner used those lessons later in October when his house caught fire and he led his younger sister, baby brother and grandmother safely out of the house. Christian Cooper received an award for being a hero from Springfield Twp. firefighter Noelle Diller for his response to the fire.

“As a teacher, you always hope that your students are actively learning what you are teaching,” said Christian’s Kindergarten Teacher, Ms. Cortney Simpson. “However, even more rewarding is when you see that they apply what you have taught them and Christian Cooper applied what he learned!  I was so proud of him for using the skills he was taught about Fire Safety, from what I taught him in the classroom to what the Springfield Township Fire Department reinforced during their visit.  A teacher couldn't be more proud!”
