SUPERIOR — The Superior Fire Department is hosting a fire prevention program for homeschooled students Monday, Oct. 17 and Tuesday Oct. 18.

Firefighters visit public elementary schools each year to teach fire safety to students. The new Home School Fire Prevention Program is a chance to offer the same fire knowledge to homeschool students. The presentations are available to children in kindergarten through fourth grade, and will take place at the headquarters station, 3326 Tower Ave.
Superior firefighters place 343 flags outside the Superior Fire Department Headquarters on Friday, Sept. 10, 2021. The Superior Firefighter Union IAFF Local 74 came up with the idea to honor the 343 New York firefighters who died at Ground Zero on Sept. 11, 2001.

Students will learn about fire safety, tour the station and get the chance to sit in a fire truck. They will be instructed on how to escape from a burning building in the department’s mobile fire house, as well.

There are still 20 spots available for students on Monday, Oct. 17. The Tuesday session is full. Call the Superior Fire Department headquarters at 715-395-1680 and ask for Caleb in the inspection office to sign up for the free program.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
