Our team continues to move mountains for our customers and in our communities! David Gates recently showcased this at his Community Service Day, dedicating a full day to helping his local community as a volunteer firefighter.
David has served on the Elgin Fire Department for the past 10 years. Every year, the team participates in National Fire Prevention Week, which aims to educate the public on fire prevention and safety in the event of a fire. During this nationwide effort, firefighters across the country provide lifesaving education with the goal of drastically decreasing casualties caused by fires. In the event of a fire, things can change in mere seconds, so education and preparation is key. With the Elgin Fire Department, David is ensuring that his community understands how to prevent fires and is prepared if they do experience a fire.
For the past four years, David has participated in National Fire Prevention Week at his local elementary school. The Elgin Fire Department team dons their uniforms and spends the day teaching children how to prevent fires and stay safe if they experience one. These resources are crucial and aim to prevent tragedy in the Elgin community.
Thank you to David for your dedication to the Elgin Fire Department!
