FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): The annual WOWO Fire Drill will take place Wednesday morning.

WOWO’s very own Pat Miller and Kayla Blakeslee will broadcast live from Forest Park Elementary School this morning as students from across the area participate in simulating what would happen if they had to evacuate during a fire.

The goal is to promote fire safety, and the drill takes place each year during National Fire Prevention Week.

During the special WOWO broadcast, a student from the school will sound a fire alarm with the help of Fort Wayne firefighters. Students will experience flashing lights and smoke emitting from smoke machines as they evacuate.

The exact time of the drill will not be announced ahead of time, in order to keep the nature of the surprise drill intact.
