Julian, a third-grader at Rochester City School District #19, got a big surprise when he was called to the school principal's office: his name had been drawn from the 200 posters submitted to the Prevention 1st Home Fire Drill Poster Contest to get a ride to school on a fire truck!

Engine #7 of Genesee Street did the honors, and definitely got Julian to school on time--with a slight delay for media interviews! Rochester Fire Department Chief Salvatore Mitrano III was on hand to congratulate Julian, as were his teachers, classmates and the school staff.
