Members of the Hennepin Fire Department spoke to students at Putnam County Elementary School in Hennepin on Tuesday, Oct. 6, as part of National Fire Prevention Week. Fire prevention officer Quentin J. Buffington (left) informed the students about all the equipment firefighter Nick Henry (right) wears for protection while he fights fires. Henry removed his extra layers to show that he is just like anyone else underneath all the gear. Buffington also spoke about “Stop, Drop, Cover your Face and Roll” and presented students with an escape plan contest in which they can win a ride in a fire engine to school in the upcoming weeks.
