Thursday, December 22, 2011 The Kent Island VFD Life Safety Division recently hosted Kent Island Cub Scout Pack #495 at Station #1 where the scouts learned about Safety and Firefighting from Life Safety Officer Dave Reid and his daughter, FF Chelsea Reid.
The scouts learned about the equipment firefighters use to protect themselves from the heat and toxic gases. In addition, the group was trained in home safety in the departments Safety Trailer which uses safe smoke to teach the children how its safer at the floor, and how a heated door means there could be fire on the other side.
While we pride ourselves on our ability to respond to emergencies in our community, teaching Safety and preventing the need for our services is much more beneficial.
Thanks to Dave and Chelsea for their dedication and commitment to the Life Safety Program.
