Would you enjoy interacting with children ages 2-4 years and know you are helping them learn to stay safe at the same time? A double win!!

Thanks to a collaboration between the Rapid City Public Library and the Rapid City Fire Department, RCFD Fire Corps volunteers from 18 to 81 can be part of the Book Buddies Story Time at the library’s main building from 9:30 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. on the first Tuesday of every month. The best part is that not only will there be fun books to read and games to play, but the kids and their accompanying parents (and maybe the volunteers!) will learn more about fire and personal safety! Just think: how often can you have all the fun of reading to and playing with youngsters and help them learn to be safe, too?

An orientation, training, materials, and mentoring are only part of what volunteers will get from Fire Corps, along with high fives and hugs from the kids!

For more information on this and other RCFD Fire Corps opportunities, please call Lisa Saunders at 605-394-5233.
