CBS4: Aurora Firefighters Head Back To Class With Adopt-A-School Program

Story excerpt:

"The Aurora Fire Department is seeing early success with its Adopt-A-School program. In September 2019, fire crews started partnering with different schools in the community they serve to build closer relationships with students and staff.

'We came over [and] met with the administrators and just asked if we could pop in maybe once or twice a month,' Capt. Ben Hoefler said.

As part of the Adopt-A-School program, different crews will partner with different schools in the Aurora and Cherry Creek School districts scheduling visits at least once a month.

They’ll be in service and monitoring calls while they’re on campus helping with everything from homework and reading with students who are falling behind to simply stop by to have lunch."
