The Little Falls Fire Department sent members of the unit over to Benton Hall for a high-five Friday last week.

Tracy Young organized the event and stated, “I decided to invite the Little Falls Fire Fighters because this is the perfect opportunity to remind the students about fire safety. Making sure that they’re watering the Christmas trees and unplugging their lights at night. It’s also the perfect time to check your smoke detector battery and practice a fire drill before the winter weather.”

She said that they always do fire prevention in October but felt that this was the time to remind them to do that.

“I lost my best friend in December – one of the Cagwin’s. Kris, Joshua, and Jenni. We also lost the McLeod kids in 1991 as well,” she said. “This is the perfect opportunity to review things.”
