Battleground Martial Arts and Leadership Academy Visits HSVFD
Sat. Jul 28th 2012
A couple weeks ago, 2nd Lieutenant D. Cooper was approached by one of the instructors at Battleground Martial Arts and Leadership Academy, Noel Malave, inquiring about bringing their students to the station for a tour of the station, as well as a fire safety demonstration. Without hesitation, he agreed to do so. After organization between Hampden-Sydney Fire and Battleground Martial Arts, the date was set. On July 28th, 2012, the students of BMA, as well as the instructors, Noel Malave and Jeremiah Bunker, and the parents arrived at Hampden-Sydney Fire. In all, about 15 people showed up, with the students age range from 5 to 17 years old. After a brief introduction and description of what we do at Hampden-Sydney Fire, the kids were able to explore the apparatus, observe the tools we use, and even try on some turnout gear. Near the end, Lieutenant Cooper gave a demonstration on how to use a fire extinguisher to the students, including a small live fire demonstration. Afterwards, Lieutenant Cooper went over fire safety tips for household use, such as what to do when you realize there is a fire, and establish a fire preparedness plan in case something happens. It was a great opportunity to get the community involved with what we do. Little is seen of what the fire service does, other than flashing lights, and directing traffic. The ability and the chance to have members of the public, whether 5 years old, or 50 years old, is a great tool to teach fire prevention and community trust. In all it was a good day for everyone involved. Battleground Martial Arts and Leadership Academy does not only Martial Arts training, but life skills training, such as self-esteem, respect for self and respect for others. They offer guidance and positive role models to todays youth. For more information about Battleground Martial Arts, visit their website!
