MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WTVF) — Second grade students at Erma Siegel Elementary school in Murfreesboro, are getting a very detailed lesson on fire safety, from the Murfreesboro Fire Department.

The department works with local schools, to teach students what to do should a fire or emergency take place.

The students also had the opportunity to see important equipment used, such as a thermal camera, and even encouraged them to "close before you doze," meaning at home, close your bedroom door before you go to sleep, in case fire breaks out.

The students were very receptive and even designed specific exit strategies for their own homes.The winners of those plans, at the end of the semester, will be escorted to school in a fire truck.
