In March, the Lugoff Fire Department (LFD) launched a new outreach program into the two elementary schools within its fire district in an effort to help educate young children in fire prevention and firefighter identification. The program, titled “Adopt-A-Fire Truck,” involves LFD firefighters dressing out in their full firefighting gear to include the air packs as they arrive at the elementary school. Firefighters then enter the school into the library or classroom and read books to the kids.
