On Friday, Sept. 14, Charlotte Central School 5th through 8th grade students participated in fire safety training with the Charlotte Volunteer Fire and Rescue. Firefighters Jordan Paquette and Fritz Tegatz talked with students on the dangers of fire, shared safety tips when dealing with a fire and demonstrated how to use a fire extinguisher. The students also got some hands-on experience with the fire hose.
