LIVINGSTON, NJ — Students of the Early School (ES) of Temple B’nai Abraham enjoyed time with members of the Livingston Fire Department during Fire Prevention Month in October when they visited the school with a fire truck and gear.

Livingston Assistant Fire Chief Kevin Francione and Livingston Firefighter Tracey Bent shared the annual safety message and Tracey dressed in special fire-fighting gear. Particularly exciting for the students was when Bent, also Temple B’nai Abraham’s facility manager, drove up in Engine No. 3.

According to Temple B'nai Abraham, becoming comfortable with what a firefighter looks like in full gear is only one of the important lessons students learned from this visit. Francione led the fire prevention discussion and demonstration for the children with the goal of familiarizing children with firefighters in case of a future emergency situation.

All ES programs are open to non-members and members. For information, contact Debbie Aronson Ziering, Director of Early Childhood Education, at 973-994-7016 or visit the TBA website at
