Elders took on the Gila River Indian Community’s bravest members during a chair volleyball game.
Before the fun commenced members of the Gila River Fire Department gave a presentation on home fire safety with the District 3 elders on May 24.
The presentation went over fire safety and what to do to prevent a fire from starting within the home.
They also were given a tour of the fire engine and the various equipment and features used while responding to an emergency.
Tips that may seem basic included, checking on dryers for the buildup of lint, making sure smoke detectors are functioning well and have a plan in case of a fire.
GRFD personnel also talked about their roles within the department serving as a fire inspector, fire marshal and engineer and how they function together.
After the presentation, the District 3 elders challenged the GRFD members to a game of chair volleyball, where the only fire brewing was in the spike, bump and serve of the players.
