Continue reading below

The Fire Department has received two grants from the state Department of Fire Services to promote safety courses for students and senior citizens. The state agency’s safety programming has been expanded to offer funds to local communities in support of fire-prevention training for older residents. Aided by a $2,518 grant from the state, Fire Chief Randolph White said, “The new Senior Safe program will help us work with the seniors in our community who are most at risk of dying in a fire.” The Fire Department will work with the Council on Aging to spread word about the program, which is aimed at educating seniors on fire prevention and general home safety, and how to be better prepared in the event of a fire. The department also received a $3,186 grant for its Student Awareness of Fire Education program.
