Fire Safety Program Makes Big Impression at May Moore


Mixing equal parts prevention and excitement, students at May Moore  gained serious knowledge of fire safety during a recent visit from Deer Park Fire Department Assistant Chief Phil Scarfi, then walked outside to scream in delight as one of the department’s fire trucks shot water out of a hose and high into the air. The event was sure to leave a strong impression on the children, reminding them what to do in case of fire.

Scarfi’s long-running annual safety program in Deer Park’s elementary schools is designed in conjunction with national Fire Prevention Month.

“Many thanks to firefighter Phil Scarfi and the Deer Park Fire Department for sounding the alarm about keeping our homes and families safe from fire,” said May Moore Principal Alicia Konecny. “Our students learned the importance of having working smoke alarms in their homes and discussing a safety plan with each parent.”
