Real Life Community Heroes
On Friday, the Georgetown Fire Department donned their gear and visited the Perley preschool to work with our preschoolers. One of the things these students learn about is who their community helpers are and thanks to Chief Mitchell, firefighter and preschool paraprofessional Donna Robbins and members of the GFD, they got to meet their heroes face to face. This activity is just one of the many ways the GFD works with our students across the district to ensure that they learn essential information that keeps them safe.
Every town has firefighters but I would say that our Fire Department goes way above and beyond the call of duty to be partners with our schools. They don’t just do the basic requirements. They work directly with our students several times throughout the year and the Fire Chief serves on our district safety committee as well. These firefighters are true community helpers not just for the work they do fighting fires every day but for all of the other ways they make their community a safer place to work, live and grow up. Our schools and our students are very lucky and we are so grateful for our partnership. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts’
