The Roanoke Rapids Fire Department visited Gingerbread House today where its students learned about fire safety.

Chief Stacy Coggins read to the children and they watched two videos.

Lieutenant B.J. Harris explained the importance of turnout gear and firefighter Darell Sanders donned the protective fire-fighting clothing for the students.

Engineer Jared Lynch showed the children the inside of the fire truck.

Gingerbread House owner Tammy Moseley also got the chance to put on an airpack and mask.

Throughout fire safety month, Coggins said the fire department has reached close to 2,000 children with the message of fire safety and prevention.
