Fire Prevention Week 2017

fire prevention week
In a fire, seconds count. Seconds can mean the difference between residents of our community escaping safely from a fire or having their lives end in tragedy. That’s why this year’s Fire Prevention Week theme: “Every Second Counts: Plan 2 Ways Out!” is so important. It reinforces why everyone needs to have an escape plan. Here’s this year’s key campaign messages: FPW 2017 Escape Plan - Draw a map of your home by using a grid with all members of your household, marking two exits from each room and a path to the outside from each exit. Practice your home fire drill twice a year. Conduct one at night and one during the day with everyone in your home, and practice using different ways out. Teach children how to escape on their own in case you can’t help them. Make sure the number of your home is clearly marked and easy for the fire department to find. Close doors behind you as you leave – this may slow the spread of smoke, heat, and fire. Once you get outside, stay outside. Never go back inside a burning building.

San Benito CISD second-grade teacher Lilia Nezzer has long volunteered as an after-school tutor to help prepare students for academic excellence. But once Sullivan Elementary School’s Afterschool Centers on Education (ACE) program was established in 2014, Mrs. Nezzer has helped to develop several specific student programs on the campus – including chess. She has intuitively included special needs students in the chess program to ensure they participate in an academic program that not only challenges them, but also allows them to soar to unimaginable heights and achievements. 
The Sullivan chess program began with 12 students and has since doubled in size. Mrs. Nezzer’s motto for the chess team is “We Try, We Learn, We Checkmate. We Do Not Forfeit,” and her lessons extend beyond chess strategies to include patience and social skills.
The students have overcome obstacles to excel locally, regionally and statewide. One of these students, ten-year-old Ricky Salazar, is a front runner on the chess team – but he didn’t start off this way. His journey had a tumultuous start, as he lost every match, but Mrs. Nezzer continued to guide and encourage him. She knew he had the ability to excel – and after a lot of hard work, Ricky placed tenth in the primary division at the Texas State Chess Championships, winning six of seven matches.
Mrs. Nezzer has instilled in the students a “can do” attitude, which has transferred beyond their academic studies into their daily life. Ricky never thought he would be able to go to and succeed in college, but after his success, he is often seen in the library looking for books that will advance his chess strategies and academic skills so he can receive a chess scholarship for college. Through Mrs. Nezzer’s mentorship and varied activities, Ricky and his schoolmates have a new view of their future: They see it as limitless. #IAmTXEd #TexasACE San Benito CISD
