A veter­ans group is help­ing to teach fire safety.

The VFW Post 3438 has do­nated a fire ex­tin­guisher train­ing sys­tem val­ued at about $8,000 to the West Car­roll­ton Fire Depart­ment.

The new Bul­lEx “in­tel­li­gent train­ing sys­tem” in­cludes a re­fill­able wa­ter and air based fire ex­tin­guisher sys­tem, as well as a propane-based, com­puter-con­trolled flame sim­u­la­tor that lets res­i­dents and busi­nesses practice proper tech­nique for putting out small fires, ac­cord­ing to the city.

“We’ve tried, but not been suc­cess­ful, in se­cur­ing a grant to pur­chase the sys­tem in the past, so we are very grate­ful that the VFW of­fered to do­nate the funds,” ac­cord­ing to West Car­roll­ton Fire Chief Chris Bar­nett.

VFW Post Com­man­der Joe Ketring said the dona­tion is part of the or­ga­ni­za­tion’s ef­forts to help veter­ans and the com­mu­nity. It re­cently do­nated to the Day­ton VA Hos­pi­tal and West Car­roll­ton Food Bank.
