Bangor Elementary students learn emergency preparedness

Posted:

BANGOR, Wisconsin (WXOW) - 5th graders in Bangor are better prepared in the event of an emergency.

They learned Friday first hand from Wisconsin Emergency Management about what to do in case of a fire, tornado or other disaster.

It's part of the STEP program, STEP stands for Student Tools for Emergency Planning.

It's a statewide program that teaches elementary school kids how to create an emergency plan.

All students received a bag with a flashlight, first aid kit, and blanket.

About 40 students were at the event. The program is supported in part by Walgreens and AT&T.

This is the second year the STEP program has visited Bangor Elementary.
