Gloucester Fire Department Receives State Grant for Student Awareness of Fire Education and Senior SAFE Programs

Chief Eric Smith is pleased to announce that the Gloucester Fire Department was awarded $4,381 for the Fiscal Year 2023 Student Awareness of Fire Education (S.A.F.E.) Program and $2,277 for the Senior SAFE Program by the Massachusetts Department of Fire Services.
The funding gives the department the opportunity to work directly with students in schools and seniors to educate them about fire safety and prevention. Each program is tailored to the common needs of each age group and includes general fire prevention reminders and safe practices in the home. Lessons feature many safety topics including steps to take if a fire alarm goes off.
The lessons taught in the school-based program are in line with the standards of the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education Health Curriculum Frameworks and the state Department of Fire Services Curriculum Planning Guidebook.
Twenty-seven years after the introduction of the S.A.F.E program within schools, the rate of annual child fire deaths has decreased by 78%, according to the state’s Department of Fire Services, which administers the two programs.

3 Years Ago Today

Three years ago today. Sometimes, when life is simply all about work and taxiing my boys around, it can be difficult to find something “Gloucester” to share at 9:00 am. Today was one of those days. So, I turned to my Facebook memory and realized that three years ago today we were in Laguna Beach, California on a zodiac to see the whales, sea lions, and dolphins. That was Day #1 of our west coast trip to visit my brother. We later visited Rodeo Drive, the Hollywood Hills, Venice Beach, the Santa Monica Pier, and much more. About six weeks later we found ourselves in a full-blown pandemic and we were even more thankful that we had taken the opportunity to travel and spend time with family.
