SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Area high school students are gaining construction experience by helping relaunch Savannah Fire's fire safety house. 

The mobile house was used to teach young children about life-saving fire safety, but it hasn't made an appearance in quite some time, and the fire department is ready to bring it back. 

Architecture and construction students at Windsor Forest High School will apply lessons they've learned to spruce up the house by pressure washing and painting it. 

"I can probably see this coming down the road going to an elementary school or community event to teach kids about fire safety, and I will feel it down in my heart that my work went to help somebody else," said Sean Pressburg, Senior, Windsor Forest High School. 

Savannah Fire will complete the renovation over the summer. It's expected to be back in use by fall.
