Lunch ‘fires’ up interest
By ROBERT STEWART Staff Writer
Flamc-broilcd burgers and flame prevention were the order of the day as “fire chiefs” and ‘Tire marshals” from local elementary schools descended on New Braunfels’ Central Fire Station to enjoy lunch with the firefighters.
“It’s a lot of fun," said Elroy Friescnhahn, New Braunfels Fire Marshal. “It’s always a big pleasure for me. A lot of planning has gone into the contest.”
As pan of fire prevention month, students from area schools competed in two contests. Kindergarten through second grade students made fire micks out of a shoeboxes while third through fifth-gradcrs wrote essays with the theme: “Fire won’t wait, plan your escape.”
“I was impressed,” said Fire Chief Phil Baker. “We had some of the best (model) fire trucks ever.”
The top two winners from each participating school were named “fire chief” and “fire marshal.” Those winners were picked up at their school in fire trucks, EMS units and other official vehicles and taken to the fire station.
“This is the smoothest lunch we have had,” said Captain Bob Recd. “The delight on the faces of the children makes this all wonh it.”
The H-E-B Food Store in New Braunfels donated $300 wonh of food for a feast of hamburgers, beans, chips, ice cream and punch or lemonade.
“The students and teachers have all been very cooperative,’’ Fricsenhahr said. “And I think they learned a lesson that the Department docs care for their well-being.”
Special guests at the luncheon included City Councilmcmbcr Paul Fraser and interim City Manager Hector Tamayo.
“It’s so fun doing it for the kids because they really appreciate it,” said John Robinson, firefighter. “When people get older they don’t get into this kind of stuff anymore but the kids really enjoy it.”
Robinson and Stacy Cornwell worked especially hard on the fire prevention contests, Fricsenhahn said.
At one point, Fire Department personnel extended a fire truck ladder 70 feet in the air for a demonstration. A firefighter climbed the ladder, waved at the group of students and teachers

Schools participating in this year’s contest were Lone Star, Sis. Peter and Paul, First United Methodist, Lamar, New Braunfels Christian, Carl Schiir/, Frazier, Scclc, Memorial Elementary, Memorial Primary, Goodwin. Cross Lutheran, and First Protestant.
Activities still to come during Fire Prevention Month arc the “Change your clock/change your batteries” campaign aimed at Oct. 27 when clocks arc turned hack one hour. This is a good lime lo change batteries in home smoke detectors, which should be done at least annually, Fricsenhahn said.
The New Braunfels Fire Department will put new batteries in your smoke detector for free. Just call 625-3811 and tell them when would be a good time for them to come by.
Also, if you are a senior citizen and own your own home, the Fire Department will install a free smoke detector in your home.
Fricsenhahn encouraged everyone to take advantage of these programs because “fire won’t wait, plan your escape.”
