Volunteers Continue to Share Life Saving Messages

On Tuesday October 10th, East Brandywine Fire Company volunteers visited Brandywine Wallace Elementary School and continued to share important life saving messages with the students.

Over the course of two assemblies our team of committed volunteers focused not only on fire prevention tips but other important emergency topics.

Firefighter Ken Ader, whose children attend the school, highlighted the importance of actively engaging the kids in order to enhance the learning. Ader said "while it is great to have a kids look at a fire truck that is not necessarily going to save their life in an emergency". Ader added "what will save their life is knowing things like how to react in an emergency, how to call 911, and actively understanding escape planning".

Dr. Linda Leib, Principal of Brandywine Wallace praised the team for another great year and highlighted the important relationship that exists between the School and the Fire Company.

Over the course of the next two weeks East Brandywine Fire Company volunteers will continue to be out educating the Community on these important life saving messages.
