Schoolchildren got a lesson on how to put safety first as the Bermuda Fire and Rescue Service continued Fire Safety Awareness Week.

Wayne Caines, the Minister of National Security, took the fire safety proclamation into schools yesterday.

The service will take this year’s theme of “Look. Listen. Learn. Be Aware — Fire Can Happen Anywhere” island-wide.
