Last week, flames ripped through Southside Christian Childcare in Louisville, Kentucky. According to news reports, the employees were able to get all of the children out and into a nearby Home Depot building while firefighters fought the flames.
The fire departmentcredited the employees with saving the children’s lives and stated that the child-care organization’s leadership and accountability are a reflection of a well-practiced fire escape plan.
“The police department’s message is ‘Don’t drink and drive.’ Our message is to have a fire safety plan,” said Jefferson County Fire spokesman Jordan Yuodis earlier this week. “Today is a good example of a fire escape plan and it saved lives.”
All employees received a certificate of appreciation. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
