Volunteer Firefighters Teach Prevention, Safety

Primary school tour fire trucks.

Volunteer firefighters from Phelps and Clifton Springs Fire Departments made visits to share fire safety tips during Fire Prevention Month with some of Midlakes youngest students in October.

Volunteer firefighters spent a day with students at Midlakes Primary School, and then visited with youngsters at Midlakes Intermediate School for a school assembly on fire prevention. Students had a chance to inspect a firefighter’s turnout gear, tour trucks from each department, ask questions, and more.

Dana Egburston of the Phelps Fire Department visited primary school students with Nicole Delpriore and Paige Boor, both of the Clifton Springs Fire Department.

Boor returned for an intermediate school assembly with fellow Clifton Spring volunteers Connie Jones, Nate Cook and Kim VanCamp.
