Port Allegany firefighters celebrate Fire Prevention Week

Ryker Johnson wasn’t so sure about being in the arms of his father, Andrew Johnson, when dad was dressed in full turnout gear; Ryker seemed to keep a close eye on him afterwards, too. Local children will have a chance to learn more about firefighters, as the Fire Prevention Week crew from Port Allegany’s Star Hose Company #1, led by Chief Kevin Ernst, will visit local schools, day cares, senior centers and more. They will educate the children, senior citizens and community about fire prevention. The first stop for the fire department was at Weakland’s Wee Care. The fire department is holding an open house from 5 to 8 p.m. Thursday. The public is invited to come check out the station and equipment and take a ride on the fire trucks.
