KENMORE — The Northshore Fire Department (NFD) received a grant from State Farm Insurance for $4,328 to assist with funding for the Department’s Elementary School Fire Safety Program. Northshore Fire will begin its fifth year presenting the program this fall in the five elementary schools in the fire district. State Farm has invested in this important program since its inception in 2007, and the Northshore Fire Department values its partnership with them. "The Northshore and Shoreline School Districts have supported this program from the beginning and have generously allowed us into the classrooms to deliver these important safety messages to the students", said Fire Marshal Jeff LaFlam.
Northshore firefighters and fire prevention staff visit the kindergarten, 1st, 3rd and 6th grade classrooms to teach students about fire safety and fire survival skills.
