Oysterponds elementary students learned hands-on fire safety lessons Friday morning at Orient Fire Department.

Students participating in program, run by the Orient, East Marion, Mattituck and Cutchogue fire departments, crawled through a trailer simulating a smoke house to learn how to best escape their homes in the event of a fire. Firefighters also taught the kids about ladder trucks, ambulances and helmet safety.
