 On October 28, fire fighters from the Cottonwood Volunteer Fire Department presented students in grades 5-8 with a workshop on fire safety.  Ed Holthaus was the main presenter and he talked to students about the importance of having a fire escape plan.  He also talked about the dangers of having candles burning in the house and to make sure they are attended to.  He talked about boiling water and making sure that it is watched and not left to boil dry.  He also discussed being aware of smokers in the house and properly disposing of matches.  At the end of the presentation he showed a video of an actual fire, how quickly it grew, how the fire fighters went in to rescue people and how they put the fire out.
