Throughout October, the Bryan County Emergency Services, in a collaborative effort with its community partners, focused on fire-safety education in the schools, churches and the community.
Those who ordered a pizza last month from Papa’s Pizza, It’s Italian, Upper Crust or DeanO’s Pizza had some smoke-alarm information attached to the pizza box.
Kids’ Sparky coloring sheet could be taken to The Ice Cream Stop, Dairy Queen or one of the local McDonald’s for free ice cream or other treats. Some local kids may have come home with pencils, pens, lip balm or other items from the Urgent Care, South State Bank or from Galbreath and Son’s Heating & Cooling.
There also was a Coke banner outside one of the fire stations to remind people that “Working Smoke Alarms Save Lives.” For those walking into the Great Ogeechee Seafood Festival, there was the BCES puppet stage, puppets and clowns sharing some fire-safety messages along with Georgia Forestry.
The lists above are just a few of the activities BCES performed throughout the month of October.
