Middleboro Elks Lodge #119 Support Middlesboro Fire Department

Middlesboro Lodge #119 of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks recently made their

annual donation of $500 to the Middlesboro Fire Department to help them with their School Fire Prevention Program.

Each year Middlesboro firefighters

distribute manuals, badges, posters and many other materials to pre-K through 5th grade children in elementary schools and daycares located in Middlesboro. These materials are then covered in the classrooms by their teaches. The materials make learning fun as the children play games and do puzzles while learning how to prevent fires and what to do in case of a fire. Afterwards, the children take the materials home, and their parents can also learn from them. No doubt many lives have been saved and many fires prevented because of this program which the fire department conducts annually in cooperation with the National Fire Safety Council.


Each year over 10,000 pieces of materials are distributed to about 2,500 children in Middlesboro. The Elks donation will provide materials for about 200 of these children. The Elks are always glad to join the many other organizations, businesses and individuals who help Middlesboro's first responders each year with this program. Pictured are three of Middlesboro's finest accepting the donation. From left Captain Josh Keck, Acting Fire Chief Nick Miracle, Past Elks President Tommy Harrell and fireman Jeromy Killion.
