Neighborhood Promise Kept

Fire Department

When she moved in, a neighbor promised to keep her neighborhood safe.

She was walking to the park with her son when she saw some smoke coming out of a building. She thought “Hmm maybe they’re having a cookout.” Then she thought “Ehh that’s a little too much smoke for a cookout.”

She went inside the building to see what was going on. Immediately she realized the building was on fire! She called the fire department, and noticed two young kids sitting in the hallway coughing. She grabbed them and carried them out. As she was carrying them out, the kids started saying “My Grandma! My Grandma! She’s in there!” So the woman went back in to get the grandma!

The woman said “Let’s all go out there and give each other a hand. That way of thinking will make Jacksonville better.”
