On behalf of the JPCA, Firefighter Chris Paolicelli (from Ladder Co#136 in Elmhurst) was kind enough to stop by and visit with the Pre-K students at the YAI/NYL Forest Hills West School in Middle Village. Handing out firefighter-themed hats and goodies made Chris very popular as he discussed his job for their "Community Helper" themed week. The kids presented to the fireman a fire engine shaped "thank you" card. He is shown in the picture with the kids and their teachers.
