Students at Roanoke Avenue Elementary School learned about fire safety as part of a Riverhead Fire Department program. Throughout the week of Oct. 21, each class visited the fire department’s smoke house, set up in the school’s parking lot. One by one, the students learned to escape through a window as simulated smoke billowed around them. They also practiced making mock calls to 911 and learned how to plan a meeting place with their families in case of a fire.
