VFF Community Involvement
Does your VFF involve itself in teaching the public?
Slowly but surely our Dept is getting it's foot in the door of the community. I have encountered a fair amount of resistance to teaching but I keep trying. So far we have hosted Kindergarten and Home-Schoolers visits, taught Fire Safety to the Grade 7 Babysitter's class, and presented a seminar to our local senior's about Fire Safety.
What do you other folks do out there? What is the best way to go about providing this service? I live in an area where "God's Will" is the answer to my offers to provide information. I have often thought that a good comeback might be that maybe "HE" has sent me to help "you!!" I haven't used that reply because it seems so pompous but for the life of me I can't understand why people choose to ignore something that they can get for free; only their attention is required.
I'm SO frustrated....
Sorry about the rant-like appearance of this post:(
