Elementary School Students Catch a Ride on Fire Truck

by Randy Ziegenfuss on June 9, 2016

WSVFC2016In an effort to encourage fire prevention awareness more than once a year, the Western Salisbury Volunteer Fire Company has collaborated with Western Salisbury Elementary School on a contest called Inspire Fire Prevention.

Students were asked to draw a picture and write a short essay about the theme of this year’s contest: “Hear the Beep Where You Sleep. Every Bedroom Needs a Working Smoke Alarm!” Three out of five residential fire deaths happen in homes with no smoke alarms at all or no smoke alarms that work. When there is a fire, smoke spreads fast and smoke alarms give you time to get out.

Grade levels K-5 participated in the contest and showed their skills of writing and telling stories. Winners were announced on Tuesday, May 31st during school and six (6) first place winners took a ride a fire truck to school on Monday, June 6. Winners were…

  • Isabella Nimeh
  • Owen Fogel
  • Kennedy Mattern
  • Tyler Kehl
  • Thomas Lovelidge
  • Olivia Spedaliere

Western Salisbury Volunteer Fire Company is proud to support the students of Western Salisbury Elementary, as conveyed by Chief Joshua Wells, “Educating our township on the importance of fire prevention is a primary goal of our fire company”.
