The theme for this project is:

Fire Safety

Learn what it takes to be a firefighter- teamwork, speed, fearlessness, and love for your community. For this project, students are divided into 2 groups. One group is running an obstacle course to demonstrate basic Firefighter skills such as, teamwork, efficiency, speed and accuracy. The obstacle course concludes with students using a fire extinguisher to put out a fire. Meanwhile the other group is learning basic first aid skills and CPR. This group will also assemble a basic first aid kit to take home or to be donated.
