Chief Michael Dwyer is pleased to announce that the West Newbury Fire Department is offering free children’s fire activity bags for West Newbury residents.
During the month of October, the West Newbury Fire Department will be offering these bags to celebrate Fire Prevention Month and teach children of all ages about fire safety.
The bags include an activity book, fire prevention pamphlets, stickers and a plastic fire helmet. These activity bags are designed to help teach children and families more about fire safety.
“During normal fire prevention months, the West Newbury Fire Department tries to ensure a presence in West Newbury school classrooms to discuss the importance of fire safety,” Chief Dwyer said. “In the wake of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we decided to take an alternative approach to discuss the importance of fire safety by providing these educational kits. We encourage any family who would like one to reach out to us as soon as possible.”
Families can request the activity bags by either privately messaging the West Newbury Fire Department on Facebook or by emailing email@example.com. Those interested in receiving a bag should provide the department with their name, address and number of bags needed.
All requests should be made prior to Friday, Oct. 30.
Once the department has received your request, a West Newbury Firefighter will deliver the bags to your home on either your doorstep or doorknob. All deliveries will be contactless.
