Fire Prevention

Our Fire Prevention Program has been in place for several years. We go to Ingleside Primary and Gilbert J. Mircovich Elementary and teach the students about preventing fires and what to do in case of a fire. Outdoors, the students get to explore the fire trucks and watch the firefighters put on their gear. Inside the schools, our Fire Marshal gives presentations with the help of our firefighters and Sparky the Fire Dog.
