Firefighters ensure schools are ready for kids

With the new school year just a few days away, members from the Guam Fire Department stepped up to make sure that a pair of southern schools were prepped and ready to go. A handful of firefighters and volunteers from Platoon A took the time out to clean and cut grass at Harry S. Truman Elementary School in Santa Rita.

Also, the crews from Station #6 donated over $300 worth of basketballs, soccer balls, footballs and even tether balls to Inarajan Elementary and Middle School.

And on Friday, crew members from the Tamuning Fire Station painted a bus stop in the Jonestown area.
