GFD participates in Adopt-A-School program

by Krystal Paco

Guam - With dozens of GovGuam agencies participating in the Adopt-A-School program, the island's firefighters spend the week volunteering at Agueda Johnston Middle School.

GFD's Cheif Mike Aguon says the men spent Wednesday waterblasting the entire campus and all of Thursday painting the school's deck, benches, and poles.

"Firefighters, it's our nature to serve. That's what we do. We do it for our job and we also do it for the community, especially when you mention kids. That's the key right there. Everybody responds to that," he said.

AJMS principal James Petitte commends the men as many are coming straight from work to volunteer at the Ordot campus.

He also commends his staff also working to spruce up the campus before the start of the school year slated for August 19th.
