Northshore Fire Department receives State Farm grant to teach fire safety to children

Friday, August 12, 2011

The Northshore Fire Department received a grant from State Farm Insurance for $4,328 to assist with funding for the Department’s Elementary School Fire Safety Program. 

Northshore Fire will begin its fifth year presenting the program this fall in the five elementary schools in the fire district. 

State Farm has invested in this important program since its inception in 2007, and the Northshore Fire Department values its partnership with them.

 “The Northshore and Shoreline School Districts have supported this program from the beginning and have generously allowed us into the classrooms to deliver these important safety messages to the students,” said Fire Marshal Jeff LaFlam.
Northshore firefighters and fire prevention staff visit the Kindergarten, 1st, 3rd and 6th grade classrooms to teach students about fire safety and fire survival skills. More than 6,150 students have benefited from this program over the last four years. Students receive a take-home folder with information that reinforces what they learned in class. It also includes resources for the whole family.
