Local firefighters shared many important lessons with kids at Gunnedah Baptist Community Preschool on Tuesday.
Gunnedah Fire and Rescue's Monica Bentham and Ian Crawford spoke to the children about smoke alarms, what to do if there was a fire, and safe and unsafe practices.
The clever kids already knew triple zero was the number to call in an emergency, and that matches are for grown-ups to use - not kids.
Mrs Bentham told the children that, if a fire started, they needed to get down low and leave the house straight away.
"You can't stop to get your favourite toy; you have to get out as fast as possible," Mrs Bentham said.
The firies then showed the kids a fire hose, a breathing apparatus, the fire truck lights and sirens, and even let them sit in one of the trucks.
Mrs Bentham said Gunnedah Fire and Rescue aimed to do educational talks every 12 months, giving age-appropriate information to preschoolers and primary school children.
