Note: A copy of the Dec. 2021 email sent to the Harrisburg NAACP Environmental Committee follows.
As planned in my November update, I did contact Chief Enterline of the city fire department for a brainstorming session.
On Dec. 14, I left a voicemail and sent him the following email:
Hi, Chief Enterline.
Apologies for getting back to you so late. The Environmental Committee (Harrisburg NAACP) is still interested in community outreach with the fire department. I work at night now, but I'm available to meet any day after 10 a.m.
Whether or not the session happens, I'll reach out to the department again for a cartoon on residential fire prevention for early learners. In my proposal to State to chair this committee, I projected the script's completion in just six months from our committee's activation. This was, however, too ambitious a deadline.
In the next update, I hope to provide some bullet points on residential fire prevention tailored for the cartoon. That said, I'll aim to update the Committee in 2022 within three days of the general membership and executive meetings.
As always, I'm open to your input for the cartoon, the Committee, and so forth. Have a Happy New Year!
Chair | Environmental Committee
The founding Environmental Committee of the Harrisburg NAACP popularizes awareness for fire safety & prevention in the City of Harrisburg. Upon its formal conception in March 2021, the Committee has been developing a free educational product for young learners about non-arson house fires.
