Reilly Discusses Fire Safety With Youngsters
Brandon Reilly, a senior at St. Edmund Prep High School and volunteer firefighter, recently visited students at St. Edmund Elementary School to speak about fire safety. Reilly is involved with the Rockaway Point Volunteer Fire Department.
Dressed in a firefighter's uniform, Reilly spoke to the children about not being afraid of firefighters and explained the aspects of the uniform and the various tools used. He also demonstrated proper procedures in a fire and how to dial 911 in an emergency. Reilly, who plans on being a firefighter after graduating, said he loves being a volunteer firefighter and enjoys speaking with students about fire safety.
