    EDITH House

    EDITH House is an annual program from the Yakima Fire Department aimed at 2nd grade children as an orientation to escaping the home in case of emergency. (EDITH is an acronym that stands for Exit Drills In The Home.) We don't want them to simply know how to escape, we want them to be able to call 911 and give their address and phone number. We have all heard the stories of small children that had to call for help. Will the children in your life know who to call, and what address and phone number to give? With just a little practice, they can!
