2013 Easter Egg Hunt

The North Catasauqua Park and Playground is usually deserted in March, unless of course we have unseasonable warm weather, but that all changed on Saturday afternoon March 23rd, 2013, when hundreds of children from the borough and beyond descended on the grounds for the annual Easter Egg Hunt hosted by the North Catasauqua Fire Department.

Sheckler Elementary School Fire Prevention

Firefighters visited students at Sheckler Elementary School today as part of Fire Prevention Week.

Firefighters taught students about fire safety, preventing fires, the "Stop, Drop, & Roll", home escape plans.  Also, apparatus and equipment were on display.  Firefighters answered the many and varied questions of these young imaginations.  

 

The North Catasauqua Fire Department was joined by the Catasauqua Fire Department and Han-Le-Co Fire Department in this joint educational visit.

We would like to thank the Sheckler Home & School Association volunteers for their support during the fire department visit.  Thank you Sheckler Elementary School for allowing us to visit each year and deliver an important message to our community's children.
