Fire Newsletter Spring 2022 Edition

Our spring 2022 edition of Raleigh Fire News contains a variety of content. Chief Herbert Griffin shares his unique experience from Hurricane Harvey in Texas and the lessons he learned from it. One of the stories shines a spotlight on the Safe Place program at Raleigh fire stations, where firefighters help assist youth in crisis. Another story introduces the Raleigh Fire Department’s first official chaplain, Jeff Neal. This issue also includes tips for hurricane preparedness and grilling safety, as well as last quarter's fire statistics and a classic firehouse recipe that is one of the most popular recipes in the RFD.
