(REHOBOTH BEACH, Del.)- To educate students on greater awareness about the dangers of carbon monoxide will be a main goal of the Princess Anne Fire Department, the Somerset County Department of Social Services and the Somerset County Health Department in the days and weeks ahead.

Board of Education member and P.A. Fire Chief Robert Wells is passionate about providing training, awareness and alarms for homes and rental units to detect carbon monoxide and provide ample warning to protect lives.

The agencies will begin at Princess Anne Elementary School on Friday April 24, providing awareness training to each class at the school.

Members from each agency will be in the building all day working with students and staff. Mr. Wells has indicated he has had several hundred carbon monoxide alarms donated to the Princess Anne Fire Department from businesses throughout the nation in the wake of the tragedy that took place among the Todd family on Antioch Avenue.

Chief Wells stated the training will also take place for students at Greenwood, Washington High School, Somerset Intermediate School and J.M. Tawes Technology and Career Center.

There will be poster contests to stress awareness and safety.

The Chief hopes the media will be involved in providing information and being present to publicize the importance of the training and eventual distribution and installation of carbon monoxide detectors in homes throughout the greater Princess Anne area.
