In the event of a fire, would you know what to do?
Many more families do now, thanks to the West Webster Fire Department's fire prevention event held Sunday.
Don't let the West Webster uniform fool you.
Whether you're a mom or a reporter, you weren't getting away with being a spectator and well, that's kind of the point.
"We have a section for the adults if they have questions on carbon monoxide detectors," said Al Sienkiewicz, West Webster Fire Captain.
A chance to put those "what if's" into practice. One demonstration showed how quickly smoke from a small fire can engulf the home.
The firefighters usually can't see through the smoke, so they will crawl on the floor looking for an injured person or a child stuck in the corner.
"The average person probably calls the fire department once or twice in their lifetime," said Sienkiewicz.
They now make portable emergency escape ladders you can buy, you can actually keep them under your bed in case there's a fire. You lower it our your window in case you're stuck on the second floor.
Many fires are completely preventable. But if there is a fire, time is precious, and these kids know how to help.
"It's an opportunity for them to ask questions that probably normally don't come to mind," said Sienkiewicz.
