Fire Safety Craft Event
SERVPRO of Elmhurst recently teamed up with the Hillside Fire Department to help bring fire safety awareness to the children in the Hillside community. Chief Carling at the Hillside Fire Department donated coloring books, fire fighter hats, stickers, and training exercises for the children to do one day. We then reached out to our local daycares in the Hillside area to see if this is something they would be interested in doing one day as a craft/fire safety drill day. THEY LOVED IT! They wore their fire hats and badge stickers, while coloring in what they should do if a fire were to take place. They then ran through a fire drill, as well as practiced stop, drop and roll! They were able to keep all the fun crafts / goodies that SERVPRO and the Hillside Fire Department provided. Because of COVID the fire departments are not able to do their fire safety awareness days with the local schools, so this was the perfect way to keep getting awareness out to the young children in the community. Following the event, Chief Carling reached out to us about doing a press release in the Hillside Harold because he absolutely loved the event and the pictures that the daycare sent over to us. Be on the look out in the Hillside Harold to read more about our event!
