DSC00740The Friendswood Fire Department came out yesterday to talk to the Culinary Arts students about fire safety. They explained the different types of fires and the different types of extinguishers that are used to put them out.

Since the Culinary students are in the kitchen a majority of their class time they talked a lot about grease fires and how to control them and what to do if one gets out of hand.

The firefighters set up a safe, controlled fire and students that were interested got to use a fire extinguisher to put it out.  It was a great hands on learning experience for the students.
