Dog Teaches Children Fire Safety
Children at Shady Hill Elementary School in Ocala got a lesson in fire safety from an unlikely instructor, a three year old dog.
Using props, Maggie, a Labrador mix, showed a crowd of children what to do in case of a fire. She got down, got out, and got on the phone.
As part of Fire Prevention Month, this furry volunteer will visit 33 public elementary schools in the county, reaching 22 thousand students.
Students welcomed Maggie with excited applause and loads of questions.
Studies have shown that a majority of children mistakenly believe they should call 911 from inside their home during a fire, but Maggie showed them otherwise.
