Promote Fire Protection Week

Mexico Public Safety officers have been visiting area schools this week to promote Fire Protection Week. On Wednesday, Sgt. Russell Sing and officer Shanon Lindsay visited Hawthorne Elementary School to talk to students about fire safety, what to do if there is a fire in the house and the importance of calling 911 when there is a fire. Sing also put on his fire equipment and stressed to the students they should not be afraid of a firefighter.
