Your friendly neighborhood firefighter

Might be from Orange or West Haven

Staff from the Orange Fire Marshal's office, and an engine and crew from West Haven's West Shore Fire District made some news friends recently with a visit to the Bright Horizons at Yale West Campus.

The public fire safety education event included about 25 children, who were given lessons in fire safety such as "Stop, Drop, and Roll," and how to escape a fire should one occur in their homes, Orange Fire Marshal Timothy Smith said.

The children also had a chance to tour the newest piece of fire equipment that West Shore Fire Department recently purchased. The daycare is located on the Yale West campus, and the response to this facility for fire is handled by both Orange and West Shore fire units.

Working together with neighboring fire agencies has become standard with many communities, and this event was a perfect example of this cooperation, officials said.
