FIRE PREVENTION MONTH – Children from Mt. Edgecumbe Preschool get close to Sarah Stott after she donned all her fire fighting gear for a National Fire Prevention Week presentation at the fire hall recently. The children were told to not fear and hide from someone wearing the protective gear during a fire. Pictured are, from left, Brice Smith, Michelle Snowden, Stott, Niomi Nelson, Brianna Hazel, Heather Allery, Elliot Longtin, Calvin Strong, Song Mayo and Shewa Bryner. October is National Fire Prevention month.  (Sentinel Photo by James Poulson)
