Students at Wichita's Cessna Elementary School Thursday morning swore in to accept a role with the Wichita Fire Department.

The students became new junior fire marshals as part of an event where they learned about fire safety. As part of this process, students had the chance to use a mobile fire safety house for a training exercise. This training helped them learn just what to do in the event of a fire.

Thursday's fire-safety event coincided with the Wichita Fire Department and Wichita Public Schools receiving grants from The Hartford, which also provided the mobile fire safety house.

The grants go toward continued efforts to teach children about fire safety.
