If you have elementary age children, you are probably aware of the fact that we’ve been to their school at one time or another. But did you know that we target all of the elementary schools in our district with a “mentoring program”? That’s right!
During the school year, we make frequent visits to the elementary schools in our to do things ranging from fire safety education to simply reading a book to a group of children.
We believe strongly that if we can reach out to the children and educate them about fire safety when they’re young, then we can reduce the number of accidental fires started by children. While it is our job to fight fires as they occur, it is also our job to prevent them. Kids are instructed not to play with matches, as well as how to escape fires if necessary, and how to dial 911 in emergencies.
We are also encouraging the kids to do their school work in order to earn good grades. By inserting fire fighters in the classrooms, we are providing additional positive role models for the children to look up to.
We look forward to these visits, and hope to have an opportunity to meet with your child soon.
