“The New Bedford Fire Department is pleased to announce we have been awarded $11,275 for Student Awareness of Fire Education (SAFE) and $3,655 for Senior SAFE grants from the Massachusetts Department of Fire Services.

Over the past year, the SAFE Program has taught thirty-eight classes to kindergarten and 3rd grade students at nineteen elementary schools. The SAFE Program also conducts Fire Prevention Week demonstrations and as well as instruction to ten daycares throughout the City. These include the YMCA, West End Daycare, and Head Start Programs.

The SAFE Program members have provided Senior SAFE classes to residents of Tabor Mill Apartments and Olympia Towers.

The grant was written by Captain William Sullivan, who also manages the SAFE Program. The Department is proud of the great work done by Captain Sullivan and the members of the SAFE Program.” -New Bedford Fire Department.
