Students at Mohave Accelerate Learning Center were treated to a Fire and Life Safety clown show on Tuesday, January 28th. The Lake-town clownz, from Little Elm, Texas, performed sharing important safety lessons with students. Using slapstick comedy, the clowns are able to convey serious information and messages that children can relate to. Lessons included EDITH (exit drills in the home), smoke alarm safety, the importance of getting low under smoke and how to properly call 911 from a cell phone in an emergency situation.
