Franklin Township Elementary School Fire Prevention Program

Today Engine-Tanker 27, Special Unit 27 and Brush 27 along with 14 BVFD Volunteers attended a day long Fire Prevention Program at Franklin Township Elementary School.  BVFD along with Cashtown FD and others do this annual Fire Prevention program at the school.  Firefighter groups attend each classroom and complete a presentation followed by students getting to tour the apparatus. Firefighters attend lunch with the students.  New Students to the school are given a new smoke detector (10 year model) to take home and have installed in their homes.  BVFD would also like to thank Franklin Township Staff for their support of this Fire Prevention program.  BVFD would like to Thank our members who took a day off work today to help with the teaching of fire safety to the students and residents of our 1st due area.
