(WBIR - Gatlinburg) After competing in Friday's Firefighters' Combat Challenge, a lot of kids know just what to do in case of a fire.
Thirty kids between the ages of six and 11 took to an obstacle course, putting into action what they've learned all week at Gatlinburg's sixth annual Firefighters Kids Camp. The free camp taught the kids what to do if there's a fire, and the importance of smoke detectors and having a fire escape plan.
Organizers say the kids don't just keep the life-saving information to themselves, but are eager to share with others.
"We have had so many parents come back year after year and just talk about how much their kids have learned at this camp. That it prepares them on what to do if they're at home in the middle of the night and that smoke alarm goes off because they've practiced it here in camp many, many times," said Gatlinburg Fire Chief Greg Miller.
Fire safety isn't the only thing these kids learned this week. They were also taught water safety, bike safety, and outdoor safety. The young ones even learned basic first aid.
