Four students at John Small Elementary School in Washington won a fire department challenge to come up with a fire exit plan for their home. They were rewarded Monday. Not only did they get a ride on a stretcher, but were given a ride on a fire truck to the station for lunch. If you don't have an exit plan for your house, firefighters say now is a good time to come up with one and practice it.
