BELMAR, NJ — Learning about fire safety can be fun. That was the lesson of the day recently for Belmar Elementary School and St. Rose Grammar School students who were entertained and educated during a Firefighter Phil Safety Program.

Presented by the Belmar Fire Prevention Office, the program held at each school featured “Magic Dave” Carruth of Creative Safety Products — a South Hackensack-based company that has been bringing its child safety assemblies to elementary schools for more than 40 years.

Carruth used his talents as a ventriloquist and magician — with a touch of humor sprinkled in — to engage his young audience and convey an important message on fire prevention and safety.

“The fire safety principles of knowing two ways out, not to play with matches, what to do in case of a fire and how to react were all reinforced,” said Belmar Fire Marshal Ryan Dullea, who coordinated the event, which closed out October’s observation of National Fire Prevention Month.

The 30-minute program, presented to kindergartners through second-graders at Belmar Elementary School and kindergartners through fourth-graders at St. Rose Grammar School, was funded through contributions by 23 local businesses.
