On today's show, Bobbi Beers joins us to talk about the upcoming Roaring Spring Fireman's Festival. She also discusses the need for more involvement from the community and surrounding departments. The department is part of the Allegheny Mountain Firefighter Initiative.
Bobbi also shows us one of the games that the department uses to teach children about fire prevention. It is a small house with fake flames in the windows. Bobbi says and the kids use a water fire extinguisher to knock down the flames and learn about fire safety.
