Fire prevention still a focus

It may have looked a little different, but members of the firefighting community were still able to take some time last week to promote fire safety to area schools. Both the Southern Door and Brussels-Union-Gardner Fire Departments were able to teach their lessons about fire safety outdoors with their trucks and other equipment in tow. It took some meetings with the district’s administrative team to figure out how to instruct while following the proper precautions. Fire prevention officer Justin Veeser says being able to teach the skills and having kids not be afraid of firefighters is important.

Veeser says teaching the community fire safety tips such as checking their smoke detectors, having an escape plan, and keeping their doors shut at night is among his favorite things to do as a firefighter.
