The Albert Lea Fire Department each year visits local first-graders to present a handout with fire safety messages.

They take that handout home and work with parents or guardians to complete the work. When students bring it back they get a T-shirt.


Teachers and students at Lakeview Elementary School pose in their new T-shirts.
