It’s fire prevention week across the country and here in Acadiana. At the downtown fire station, Lafayette Fire Department personnel gave students from Saint John Berchmann’s Academy in grand Coteau a firehouse on how to prevent fires.
Alton Trahan of the Lafayette Fire Department says this is a great experience for kids to learn about fire prevention and safety.
“It’s fire safety week and this is our second year that we’ve had this. It’s a state of the art [facility]. Kids go inside and they get a chance to practice everything that we taught them outside.”
