VIDEO - October is Fire Prevention Month and it can be a challenge to get children excited about fire prevention. So, the Mustang Fire Department put on a production like no other to get elementary kids to soak up the safety tips and it worked. Firefighters took popular songs and changed the lyrics into fire safety terms. The students at Centennial Elementary School in Mustang loved it. “It was really fun and I liked doing it,” 4th grader Teagen Owens said. The Mustang Fire Department's show is 40 minutes of singing, dancing, puppets and comedy that teach fire prevention. “We're just all kids at heart and so the best way we learn is when we are having fun, and so if you can let the kids have fun at the same time, they are going to learn a lot more,” said Andy Willrath with the Mustang Fire Department.
