BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - Mr. Siksnius, a Berkeley Heights volunteer firefighter, visited Ms. Liming's second-grade class at Mountain Park School to discuss fire safety. The children were surprised to learn that they should have 2 escape routes from each room in the house. Fireman Siksnius encouraged our families to change the batteries in their smoke detectors. Mountain Park students appreciate our local volunteers.
