SULPHUR, OK - Three area high schools are taking part in a fire safety program that is the first of it's kind in Oklahoma.

Sulphur, Springer and Central High High Schools are the first schools in the state to take part in the pilot Junior Fire Marshal Program.

It's taught by Fire Marshal Judah Sheppard, who said he hopes to see more schools get involved.

The program teaches students about fire safety and puts them through safety tests in their schools.

"We check emergency lights," Sulphur High School student Destiny Garrison said. "We make sure the doors aren't blocked. We can only have like 20 percent of paper on the wall, and we check fire extingishers and stuff to make sure they are in date."

Sulphur High School Principal Clete Cole said he plans to expand the program at his school to include more students.
