WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH -- What's the best way to reach today's youth? Rap music? Firefighters rapped about safety during a visit to Wrightsville Beach Elementary School Wednesday. The rapping fire fighters say they have fun and so do the kids. They're safer because of it. Wrightsville Beach Fire Department Fire Prevention Coordinator Sunnie Vann said, "Sometimes the kids let the parents know more than they do. And sometimes you can hear the kids outside saying, 'Hey, mommy, why don't you have your seat belt on? I learned today in risk watch that I'm supposed to have mine on.' So it's a good community program." Among other valuable lessons the presentation taught children how to avoid starting fires and what to do in the event of a fire.
