High Honor Roll
Northwestern Elementary School fourth-grade students recently toured the MedEvac helicopter when it landed at the Northwestern Lehigh's stadium for a Safety Day program.
Each student sat inside the helicopter so he or she could see the types of equipment used by the medical staff.
They met Nurse Nikki Nothstein and Flight Paramedic Chuck Allen, as well as Lead Pilot John Driscoll, and were able to ask questions of these three medical professionals.
Each life-saving flight includes a nurse, flight paramedic and pilot.
Third-grade students from Weisenberg Elementary School recently visited the Weisenberg Township Volunteer Fire Company .
Firefighter Randy Zack spoke to the students about fire safety in their homes.
After watching a video showing how quickly a fire can spread, Zack asked the youngsters to draw a picture of their homes.
He asked them to draw two different exit routes from their homes in case of fire and to pick a meeting place once they have escaped the fire.
"Get out and stay out," Zack told the youngsters.
