CAYUGA, Ind. (WTHI) - October is fire prevention month.
The Cayuga Volunteer Fire Department is making sure preschoolers at the Cayuga Christian Church Youth Center received a quick lesson in fire safety.
They also got a personal tour of a fire truck.
With 50 years in fire service, Dowayne Osborne said it's important to teach the younger generation how to remain safe and calm during a fire.
"The generation I grew up with, we went from having roughly 15-20 fires a year...mostly in the winter time, is down to two or there. So it really cut it down significantly," Osborne said.
Officials say now is the time to go over a safety plan with your family in the event of a fire.
