Ray City, GA - (WALB) The Ray City Fire Department has launched a aggressive fire safety campaign geared not just towards children but, adults as well.

Ray City firefighters plan to make appearances through out Berrien County and eventually visit other cities and counties in Georgia. The 'S.A.F.E.' program was started by firefighters Rick Pennock, David Gilbert and Jason Knippers with support from Fire Chief Bob Mikell.

Firefighters decided to add adults into the fire safety awareness to help highlight the dangers of grease fires and careless smoking in the home just to name a few. Ray City Fire Department also hopes to join forces with other area fire departments in doing S.A.F.E. programs for both children and adults.

Firefighters Pennock and Gilbert both stated they look forward to having the chance to work with their counterparts from other fire departments in raising public awareness in firefighting and fire safety.
