Fire Escape Camp

Updated: Friday, August 2 2013, 10:18 PM EDT
This summer children are learning all about fire safety.

And in our Never Stop Learning report, we're learning all about the acronym P.A.S.S., or pull, aim, squeeze, and sweep.

These summer campers are learning how to use a fire extinguisher.

But the senior fire fighters stress that if there is a fire in their home, he kids should get out and call 911.

For three days the children get to work with Asheville firefighters, using the tools of the trade, like the jaws of life.

They also run hoses and "dress up" in the "turn out" gear.

One of the goals is to introduce the career of firefighting to local students and to teach them what to do if there is a fire.

The students even learn how to take down a door! Of course it was a big door and they did need some help from the senior firefighters but they eventually made their way through!

The camp is offered for free.Fire Escape Camp
