Kids + Fort Buchanan Fire Department = Fire Safety

By Public Affairs Office

In coordination with the United States Army Garrison Public Affairs Office, Fort Buchanan, Puerto Rico, and as part of the garrison’s Community Relations Program, 38 students from the Christian Nazarene Academy, Toa Baja, visited The Fire Department facility at Fort Buchanan on 19 March 2013. Mrs. Luz E. Santiago, third grade teacher at Christian Nazarene Academy, led the students along with a group of parents to educate them on Fire Safety. The group participated in a tour of the facilities, a fire safety video played and hosted by Firefighter Héctor Rivera and an interactive virtual home which simulates fire emergencies hosted by Lead Firefighter Luis Rojas, and Chief Inspector Axel Miranda from the Fort Buchanan Fire Department. After the educational activities, the students enjoyed lunch and played at the Bowling Center.
