Fire safety at JHS

With the help of the Jacksonville Fire Department (JFD), Jacksonville High School (JHS) teachers Mr. Ater and Mr. Suhre held a fire suppression class at JHS. The class started with a short video explaining the different classes of fire extinguishers and what situations warranted each type, plus a quick lesson from JFD. Having a bit of fun, Mr. Ater and Mr. Suhre showed the class a few gas explosions to show how quickly an explosion can happen (especially in a welding class). Following the fun explosions, the class tried their hands at extinguishing; for some it was easier said than done, but a valuable lesson nonetheless.
