MISHAWAKA, Ind. -- Knowing what to do in a fire can be crucial to getting out safely.

The Mishawaka community celebrated 30 years of teaching how to “Survive Alive" on Saturday.

The Survive Alive house was the first structure dedicated to teaching fire safety in the state of Indiana.

Its mission is to show kids how to escape a burning house safely and what to do in a dangerous situation.

Families were invited to the Hannah Lindhal Children's Museum in Mishawaka to learn about how to stay safe from the Mishawaka Fire Department.

"Stopping, dropping and rolling" were the themes for Saturday’s event.

There was also a raffle for a chance to win a ride on a fire truck during this year's Mishawaka Memorial Day Parade.
