Generous, Caring Community
This spring we have been studying weather in eighth grade science classes at OVMS. Students have developed emergency tornado plans for their homes. Additionally, they have drawn house plans with fire escape routes, meeting places and location of smoke detectors. Of the 155 students in my classes, it was discovered that 18 homes were unprotected by smoke detectors.
Here is where a very generous and caring community stepped in. After contacting Owen County Emergency Management Director Jack White, he very quickly coordinated with Owen Valley Volunteer Fire Department Chief John Wallace and Walmart to provide smoke detectors for these students. This all happened in less than one week.
Thanks so much for sending my students home for the summer better protected!
