GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) - The Greensboro Fire Department is making its annual effort to teach kids how to recognize and respond to fire emergencies.

The department is holding its second annual Youth Fire Camp. It opens on Monday and continues through Friday.

Fire Educator April Robertson says the goal of the camp is to teach children ages 7-10 to recognize, reduce, and escape various hazards. The camp uses interactive animations, hands-on activities, crafts and games to get the message to the kids.

Robertson said the camp also wants to teach children how to react to fire and emergencies, teach them what not to play with and how to get out of a house that’s on fire.

The camp concludes with a family cookout and awards ceremony on Friday.
