Reserve Keena led the presentation, with many attentive fans in the audience. One in particular, Jacob Forrester had just received a full firefighter’s suit on his 4th birthday, and felt particularly connected to the pursuit of safety. “The children have been studying a unit on campfires, and this seemed like a natural fit” notes Miss Ashley, one of the Center’s 3 Preschool teachers.
