Last evening several members and officers headed to Riverview Place Apartments to conduct a fire prevention presentation for the families who reside at the complex. This presentation was geared toward both adults and children. Topics that were discussed during the power-point presentation included but were not limited to; the 911 system, fire and household safety tips, the importance of smoke / carbon monoxide detectors, types of fires, evacuation plans, and what actions to take when a medical or fire emergency arises.

Our members also took this opportunity to educate the children on the gear that protects us during a fire. Firefighter Liberatore donned his gear along with his SCBA; this proved to be a teaching moment to reassure the children to not be afraid of firefighters in the event of a fire.

After the presentation the children received activity books, fire hats and were treated to a tour of our fire engine and even had the opportunity spray a little water from the fire hose.

A BIG thank you to the residents who took the time to attend the presentation!
