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 fire fighters put on their gear. Inside the schools, our Fire Marshal gives presentations with the help of our firefighters and Sparky the Fire Dog.
Our firefighters have the opportunity to provide training to students not just from Ingleside, but also Ingleside on the Bay, Flour Bluff, Taft, Rockport, Fulton, and Ben Bolt.
