On Wednesday, October 11, 2017, Bancroft Elementary School third grade students had an ‘at school’ field trip with the Avondale Fire Company. The Avondale Fire Company has been coming to the school for several years. During the fire company’s visit, the students learned fire safety rules like stay low in a fire and find a family meeting place outside their home. The firefighters demonstrated various pieces of equipment, including a fire suit and oxygen tanks. Students were able to climb inside of the fire truck and an ambulance. The Avondale firefighters also gave a presentation inside the common area of the third grade pod where students had the opportunity to ask questions.
