Talkington senior's project teaches about fire safety

Posted: Updated:

A senior project is teaching an important life lesson for kids.

Alyssabeth Pinkert, a student at the Talkington School for Young Women Leaders, will instruct 6th grade students how to extinguish a fire in case of an emergency. 

Se hopes students will react instinctively to a possible fire, and says putting out blazes is something she'll consider in her future. 

"Firefighting is like a backup job for me," she said. "I really like the career as a whole, I feel like its very brave and very important and i just want to shed light. I'm passionate about it because it seems like they're doing a great job that we all need.

Pinkert's teaming up with the Lubbock Fire Department to share the message. She's also raising money for the Lubbock Fire Rescue Benevolence fund.

If you have any questions please contact the on-call public information officer @ 806-544-2534 or firepio@mylubbock.us.
