11mar: Weaverville Fire Department thanks State Farm for honoring us with a grant for $5,000 for our Children’s Fire Safety Program. This grant will pay for a “State Farm Fire Safe House” simulator, and supplies for goodie bags. The simulator will give the children an interactive way to learn and remember what to do in case of a fire in their home. The house will be portable to bring to schools and pre-schools and allow the children to crawl through, touch the door for heat, and crawl out a window to practice what they need to do if a fire occurs at their home. Instead of a lecture, kids will learn better by doing! The grant also pays for each child participating in the school fire safety presentations to receive a ‘Goodie Bag’ which will contain: Fire Exit Plan coloring book with exit plan sheet, water bottle with fire safety rules, flyer on how to plan a fire escape, flyer on smoke alarm care and tips, new smoke alarm with battery, and other small miscellaneous items. The State Farm Fire Safe House will debut at the Children’s Fair in May, so come down, bring your child, and try it out!
