Sacred Heart Field Day at Ridge Road Park

This past Thursday, May 25th, the Hartsdale Fire Dept. (HFD) joined in on the Sacred Heart Elementary School Annual Field Day Event at Ridge Road Park.

HFD members joined in on the fun and supplied a Fire Prevention & Safety Trailer designed to mimic real-life scenarios that represent some of the most common fire-related threats to our community: kitchen and bedroom fires.

HFD Firefighters instructed and demonstrated Fire Prevention and Safety Tips with respect to kitchen fire and safety, smoke detector activations, calling 911, exit drills in the home (EDITH), family meeting points, staying low in smoke, feeling doors and knobs for heat that might hide fire, closing doors and confining fire, opening and unlatching window locks, and culminating with an escape out of a window onto a ladder.

All HFD personnel involved had a great time. We would like to thank the Sacred Heart Staff for reaching out to the HFD and inviting us to this wonderful event. Thank you!
