Twin-Star International, manufacturer of ClassicFlame electric fireplaces and Duraflame electric heaters, recently organized a Fire Safety Day at the Milagro Center, an arts and education school for children in Delray Beach, Florida.
The company partnered with the firefighters at the local Delray Beach Fire Department for the event. The firefighters taught the students fire safety tips and demonstrated their equipment. Twin-Star volunteers helped the children create fire safety posters that will be displayed at the firehouse.
“We enjoy working with the students at the Milagro Center,” said Lauren Thiessen, Twin-Star’s communications and media specialist. “Hopefully they will share what they learned about fire safety awareness with their families and it will save a life some day or inspire them to become firefighters when they grow up.”
According to Twin-Star, the Milagro Center is an education center whose mission is to enrich children’s lives through cultural arts, academic support and living values, benefiting the children served and their families, as well as the community. It currently serves 40-50 elementary school-aged children and 20 teens on-site daily, plus an additional 150 individuals annually through their ARTreach program.
