WESTFIELD, Ind.–This morning, Westfield firefighters and police officers launched their annual keep the children safe campaign. Firefighters from every firehouse stationed themselves at school entrances across the city. Their hope is to bring awareness to drivers and in return keep our children safe.
“The safety of our kids is paramount to what we do as firefighters,” said Scott Wolfe, one of two firefighters who developed the program last year. “We’re just trying to alert drivers and help keep these kids safe from danger.”
The awareness campaign began last year when firefighters Jason Maners and Scott Wolfe developed the program. It coincides with the first day of school and is welcomed by the community.
