Also, firefighters recently presented packets with fire prevention week tips and information at Van Allen and Dent Elementary school sites, for distribution to students.
With those schools not on campus during Fire Prevention Week, the department instead put together the packets for students including coloring books, crayons, sticker badges and a pencil. The department provided 1000 bag to the schools.
