Girl Scouts from Leesport spent Thursday evening visiting the GFC Fire Station for tour of our facility and a fire prevention demonstration.
Chief Brian Fisher opened the evening’s festivities with a talk on the proper use of 911, basic fire safety, fire fighter attire, and firefighter search techniques. This was followed by a Disney video on fire safety starring those lovable characters, Timone and Pumba.
As the evening progressed, the Scouts were given a tour of Engine 55 and tried their hand at the ever popular game “Knock the Tennis Balls off the Traffic Cones with a Fire Hose”. Chief Fisher also demonstrated how our Active 911 alert and paging system works, and Support Member Leigh-Ann Matz handed out fire prevention materials and gifts.
We hope the Scouts came away with a good understanding of fire safety, and were enlightened as to what we do at the Greenfields Fire Company.
Those participating for the GFC were:
Chief Brian Fisher
Asst. Chief Terry Royce
FFs Joe Stoudt, Dylan Heckman
Jr. FF Dylan Matz
Support Member Leigh-Ann Matz
