ASRC hosts 2 events for Fire Prevention Week

ASRC Program Director Monica Jimenez-Brown organized 2 events this month, on fire prevention. Corpus Christi Fire Department Captain James Brown spoke at a dinner on October 8, on general fire safety. Having a fire safety plan in place at home can save lives. On Saturday, October 12, Fire Station #1 hosted a tour of their station for the families. Children and their parents learned how firefighters answer calls, how they spend their shifts at the fire station, and saw fire trucks up close. They even saw a fire fighter dress up in his uniform, which is called bunkers. The children and adults who attended had a great time learning the operations at a fire station.
