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, his wife Safety Educator Carrie and his daughter, FF/EMT
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, Carrie and Chelsea for their dedication and commitment to the Life Safety Program.
