The Early Birds Kiwanis Club of Hannibal provided a donation in support of the Hannibal Fire Department's (HFD) efforts to educate people in the Hannibal area about fire safety and the HFD's capabilities. Mark Kempker, HFD training officer, attended the club meeting on Thursday, Oct. 3 and informed the members and some family members about topics including steps to take to prevent home fires and actions to take if a fire occurs in their home. Kempker has been attending various service clubs and elementary schools in the Hannibal area promoting fire safety and HFD procedures during National Fire Safety Month. The Early Bird Kiwanis Club of Hannibal supports this program on an annual basis with a financial contribution used to purchase safety education books and other materials to promote fire safety for elementary students.
