Hillsboro fire chief on back to school safety

(Hillsboro) A lot of school districts in Jefferson County start the new school year this week.

Hillsboro Fire Protection District Chief Brian Gaudet says motorists should plan ahead and be prepared for a busy morning and afternoon commute, especially around the Hillsboro R-3 campus.

Chief Gaudet is excited for the new school year and being able to teach fire safety to students.

For some school districts, the school year began on Monday, for others the first day of class is either on Tuesday or Wednesday.
