If you have watched prime time TV lately, you may have seen Capt. Peggy Harrell featured on a nationwide commercial sponsored by Kidde Fire Extinguishers. If you haven’t seen it yet, you can watch it here: https://youtu.be/uA9oCSKu-io.
In addition to serving as PIO for Plano Fire Rescue and head of the department’s Fire & Life Safety Education, Capt. Harrell also serves as PFRA’s liaison to PFR and leader of the CFA program. Congratulations to Peggy for the 5 seconds of fame!

If you attended the 2016 Plano Balloon Fest then you probably saw or talked to PFRA members working the Plano Fire-Rescue public safety booth! Volunteers handed out goodies to children and answered questions about Plano firefighters and how to stay safe around the home. If you are interested in joining PFRA, be sure to stop by our table at a future event and pick up a flyer on how you can register for the Citizens’ Fire Academy!
