Sarpy County Kids Fire Camp
Sarpy County Fire Departments offer an annual fire camp to community children at the Bellevue Fire Departments Training Site. Originally organized for children of volunteer firefighters, Fire Camp is held over a three day period. Each day is designed for age appropriate classes in the morning and afternoons are reserved for various water games. Actual fire and rescue demonstrations are shown throughout the day. This past year was a 3 day program with a different age group attending each day. Age groups are children aged 5-6, second 7-9, and third 10-11. This camp is taught by volunteer firemen and rescue personnel. While the subject material is generally the same basic first aid, CPR, helmet safety and calling 911. An example of a class is “Friendly Firefighter”, younger children are exposed to firefighters in full turnout gear with air packs to help them not be scared in the event of a fire, while older children are taught how to react to a smoke detector when home alone. The program always welcomes special needs children and days of attendance will be worked with parents and instructors. The community is always welcome to lend a hand, in fact encouraged so that our volunteer firefighter population is not overtaxed and unable to respond to calls. BVFD is truly blessed with local business support to assist with making this camp possible. Local business supplements BVFDs budget each year with surprising generosity.
This year Springfield Vol. Fire Dept. is getting involved and would like to invite Springfield children to attend this year’s camp. Transportation will be provided to and from the camp on your child(ren)s assigned day. Drop off and pick up will be at the Springfield Fire Dept. (times will be determined at a later date).
Registration forms are available at the Springfield Fire Department. Classes will fill quickly - to assure a spot for your child please get your registrations in as soon as possible.
Any questions please contact Springfield Vol. Fire Dept. 253-2600.

GREENBLATT & SEAY AT THE OLD SCHOOL HOUSE IN AVOCA, NE
Greenblatt & Seay's Schoolhouse Performance Series on Sunday, May 9, at 2:30 PM, features Deborah Greenblatt & Friends in "The Feminist Manifesto". Through the songs and writings of heroic women (and some liberated men) through the centuries, issues of civil rights and stereotypes will be explored.
Championship fiddler, Greenblatt, will be joined by her husband, David Seay, and a small ensemble of Schoolhouse Music Students. The concert will be followed by light refreshments, and a chance to chat and jam with the performers.
The historic Old Avoca Schoolhouse was built in 1925, and has been the home of the Schoolhouse Performance Series since 1990. Music lessons, workshops, fiddle camps, and field trips are offered by Schoolhouse residents, Greenblatt & Seay, and are available by appointment.
